I have posted numerous times about the importance of a growth mindset. Today I came across a great infographic that can be shared with students in order to help them take responsibility for their learning and to encourage them to develop their self-questioning skills in order to reflect on who they are as learners.
The author of this infographic is Jackie Gerstein and she developed this checklist in order to help students enhance their mindset through personal accountability. She blogs at UserGeneratedEducation and has loads of great ideas that she graciously shares.
Digging a little deeper, I found a similar checklist for teachers to use to reflect on their own practice and how they are embedding opportunities for a growth mindset to flourish in their classes:
I have a lot of open real estate on my classroom walls. I would like to engage my kids in helping me design something to help us all remember the goal of a growth mindset in all that we do.
I am also going to go back and take a closer look at Piktochart – because who doesn’t like information to look beautiful?
