Growth Mindsets to Increase Achievement – Podcast Episode 180 | Classnotes Podcast 180
Classnotes Podcast (March 7, 2018) School leaders around the country are seeing the dramatic impact that the concept of a growth mindset can have with students and staff. Researcher and psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck synthesized the understanding that, while a fixed mindset believes only some students can learn, a growth mindset is consistent with what research shows that all students learn, that the mind is always growing.
In this episode, Dr. Nilka Avilés talks with principal Gregory Rivers and assistant principal Rawan Hammoudeh about how they have led their staff with intentional development of a growth mindset that is directly impacting the success of students and teachers. Their school the San Antonio independent school district is participating in IDRA’s School TurnAround and Reenergizing for Success (STAARS) Leaders project. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education the project is a unique model that is building a strong pipeline of principals and leadership teams in a set of low performing schools in the district.
