Manitouwadge High School is using Daniel Coyle’s “The Talent Code” – Coyle’s website/blog http://thetalentcode.com/ Ted passes on that there is some great material on the site that relates directly to the learning we’ve been doing on Growth Mindset. If you scroll down on his homepage, there’s an especially interesting entry called “Five Back-to-School Study Hacks for Kids,” which among other ideas discusses “interleaved practice.”
Growth Mindset Quotes This is a file taken from the SIM site – they are just numerous quotes on growth mindset for us to use.
growth-mindset-feedback-tool It is a great tool outlining ways that we can give feedback to our students through a growth mindset lens. (From Chris! Thanks!)
