It walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at
noon and three legs in the evening. What is it?
I am the beginning of the end, and the end of time
and space. I am essential to creation, and I
surround every place. What am I?

never talks, has a bed but never sleeps, has a

 Before:
How did you feel?
 During: How did you feel? What did you
say to yourself?
 After: How did you feel? What were you
thinking?
 Discuss your B, D, A with your group and
your answer (Your group will be people

Carol DweckStanford University
Dweck’s findings: Two Mindsets
Fixed mindset:
Intelligence
and talent -
fixed
Innate talent creates
success
 Effort will not make a
difference
You either get it or you
don’t
LOOK GOOD AT ALL
COSTS
Growth mindset:
 Intelligence can be
developed
 Brains and talent are
just the starting point
 Enjoy effort and
process of learning
 You can always
grow and learn
 LEARN AT ALL COSTS
Brain Peaks!
Fixed
Right or Wrong?
Growth
Right or Wrong…Why?
Fixed mindset brains peak when they hear right or wrong. Growth
mindset brains are not as concerned about knowing right or wrong, but
WHY.
Fixed Mindset Response:
Helpless
When faced with failure or challenge,
people with a FIXED mindset:





Do not pay attention to learning
information
Get depressed, lose self-esteem
Say to themselves they’ll think ‘I am stupid
Under-represent past successes and overrepresent failures (I never do things right)
Explain the cause of events as something
stable about them. (I am ALWAYS this
way!)
Growth Mindset
Response: Mastery
When faced with failure or challenge,
people with a GROWTH mindset:
 Pay attention to learning information, and
do better on future tests.
 Focus on what they are learning, rather
than focusing on how they feel.
 Try out new ways of doing things.
 Use self-motivating statements such as
‘the harder it gets, the harder I try’.
 When faced with tests which are
impossible to pass they will factor in other
reasons and not blame their intellect (i.e.
this test was beyond my ability for now).
Carol S. Dweck, Standford University
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
“The growth mindset confirms the new research which
reveals that
intelligence can be
developed, and expertise can be built by means
of deliberate practice.”
EFFORT IS ESSENTIAL!
Brains do not
grow neural
connections
magically; they
grow them by
hard work and
perseverance.

Achievement- elementary and middle school students’ scores are labeled as
novice, apprentice, proficient or distinguished. KY's goal is 100% proficiency
for all students. At high school, achievement is based on end-of-course
exams and an on-demand writing test.
GAP- Schools compare test results for African-Am, Hispanic, Native Am,
special ed, low income, and ELL, combined into one gap group, to the results
for others students who aren’t in those categories.
Growth- A statistical program measures how much students’ scores are
improving from one year to the next. Students are only compared to their
academic peers (those who started at the same point).
College/Career Readiness- Schools and districts will provide information
about how many students are C/C ready based on scores
Graduation Rate- how many students graduate within four years of high
school.
