An Introduction to Growth Mindset
with Lindsey Pinchbeck
This class is for teachers, parents, coaches and the curious. Sharing ideas around the work of Carol Dweck on Growth Mindset, participants will learn to identify growth mindset and fixed mindset statements and actions through personal experiences and a variety of examples. Examples of Growth Mindset thinking: "If I practice and work hard enough I can improve and change." Examples of Fixed Mindset thinking: " I have innate talents or flaws, it's just the way I am." By focusing on awareness, setting intentions, reflection and practice students will build an understanding of the importance of supporting learners with Growth Mindset ideas. A willingness to journal and experiment using the arts will encourage and deepen the learning and practice of a mindset that is not fixed but geared toward growth.
