We’re doing a lot at my school to show students that they can learn, and even in the face of some challenges, they can still learn and “grow their brain”.  This work around growth mindset has developed slowly over time, with teachers learning more about promoting it, and then sharing that with students.  Recently, our first grade teachers went to New York to visit a lab school through Teachers College.  After their visit, they not only came back and began working on their new reading unit, they also were promoting growth mindset.  It is great to see the students work to adopt that mindset too, as evidenced from our featured photo with this blog post!  #fiskeschool #growthmindset #learning #mistakesareOK #PD @fiskeschool
