Interview: Carol Dweck’s Mindset

Standard

During August’s PechaKucha presentations, one student cited Carol Dweck’s amazing book, Mindset.  I love her approach and definitely work to cultivate this growth mindset in my classrooms.  So what, exactly, is this growth mindset?  Watch Dweck’s interview below:

A separate student in class talked about the athleticism and skills required to race a bike, so I felt this video was perfect on multiple levels.

Have you read Mindset?  How has Dweck’s work influenced you?
