Impact on Math Achievement <ul><li>Despite equal levels of achievement on 6 th grade standardized math tests, students’ achievement began to diverge after the first term of JHS </li></ul><ul><li>Growth Mindset students performed better in the first term AND had an upward trajectory in mathematics achievement over the 2 years of JHS </li></ul><ul><li>Fixed Mindset students had a downward trajectory in achievement over JHS </li></ul>
  3. 3. Math Achievement in Junior HS Blackwell, Dweck, & Trzesniewski (2007 ) Math Grades

Which view of intelligence is correct? <ul><li>Recent research in cognitive psychology and neuroscience is supporting the growth mindset and Dr. Dweck’s research. </li></ul><ul><li>It has shown that the brain has a greater degree of plasticity—or ability to change through experience—than previously thought. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Carol Dweck on what we’ve learned about the brain (TRIO vid 17:44-18:44)
  9. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>While there may be individual differences in aptitude or pace of learning, almost everyone has great capacity for growth, and the true potential of any individual cannot be known. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of this, as educators we serve our students best by helping them focus on how they can develop their intelligence by learning. </li></ul><ul><li>In the next module, you will learn more about how findings from the field of neuroscience have changed our view of the brain, and what these findings can tell us about teaching and learning. </li></ul>
