Doug Lemov has published a good short post titled A Tiny Little Thought-Post on Growth Mindset for Grownups.
He concludes by asking an important question:
Certainly, much of what contributes towards answering that question comes from if a teacher has a growth mindset or not.
By the same token, I’d suggest as much a contribution, if not more so, comes from the kind of leadership exhibited by administrators.
We’re luck at our school that our previous and present administrators have promoted and do promote the kind of professional culture where I think many teachers would ask Doug’s second question.
I wonder how many other administrators create the same kind of atmosphere?
I’m adding this post to The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset.”
