Who?The Tale of Two Cities: Which one will we lead?
The “Fixed Minded” City Industrial Model Control resides with adults Rules of city must be Followed People are Consumers Four Walls of learning Silos Content Driven Focus is on Success
The “Growth Minded” CityNot a Model...but a part of the community Control resides with learners Rules of city are adjusted People are Producers Learning has no walls & no ceiling Silos are torn down Process Driven Focus on Failure
The “Fixed Minded” CityLearning time is deﬁned by the adults Students are told What they will learn that dayHow long it will take them to learn it How they will learn it What tools they will have access to
The “Fixed Minded” City Motivation is Extrinsic:Students/Parents/Teachers are worried about tests grades/test scores Teachers/Administrators do extra duties for Raises/Promotions Carrot Sticks are the norm
The “Fixed Minded” CityThroughout history there have been changes to the “Fixed Minded” city More Days More Minutes Higher Standards for Students Higher Standards for Teachers Higher Standards for Administrators More Standardized Tests
The “Fixed Minded” CityBut the more the “Fixed Minded” city changes... the more it stays the same They look to other Fixed Minded Cities for Guidance and Comparisons
