I could not put this book down while I was reading it and found it to be very enjoyable to read. I finished it in less then a week and it caused me to want to read many more of the books that they recommend for further growth in the last chapter. I look forward to implementing many of the strategies recommended in this book in my classroom next year. I have gained tips for working with my own toddler as to how to help them begin to develop a growth mindset now.
This book is for you.
I'm excited to use this with my students. I think it will really help some of them discover their abilities. I'm also super excited that it's all based on scientific evidence. It's a great book though, because you get just enough of the science to help you see why the techniques will be effective. It doesn't dwell for days on the science, because good grief, Charlie Brown, you have enough to do. You just want to implement the science, not get another degree in it! We're looking for a way to help students; not a way to get more college credits. (Or maybe we are, but let's try not to think about grading winter finals and being in school at the same time. haha)
P.S. Please disregard my grammar. I teach math. ;-)
Annie and Heather have put a lot of hard work into their manual to help teachers learn and teach the Growth Mindset to their students. Each chapter is packed with lesson plans, charts, questions, resources, and more. Annie and Heather address important issues like the Growth Oriented Classroom layout, Parental involvement, Relationships between students, parents and teachers, etc. There is even a section that addresses the importance of saying goodbye to your students in a positive manner at the end of the school year.
While the book is geared for teachers, it is also useful for parents, counselors, college professors, the clergy and many other individuals in any helping field. The Growth Mindset Coach is an invaluable tool for the modern teacher concerned about the well-being and growth of his or her students. Purchase a copy today, may your students soar tomorrow. The sky is the limit with the Growth Mindset Coach at hand.
