Mindset slides

  1. 1. I think most people at <redacted> have a fixed mindset because they think that grades and teacher's comments are everything. So if a teacher requires them to come in Back Work to work further on something, they think it is punishment and they are bad at that subject or that topic. Also, if they are really strong in a subject they worry less about the grade or improvements that can be made. I think that many of my friends have a "fixed" mindset. Everyone is always so focused on making A's, and always making good grades on assignments instead of worrying about whether or not they are learning. Being at <redacted>, the parents are always expecting a good report card, and good comments, and the kids see no alternative way. They never think to get off the stress treadmill and try something new, and not always be under pressure. Tuesday, August 31, 2010
  2. 2. I think most people have a fixed mindset. Everyone is afraid to fail and to look foolish in front of their peers, so sometimes they just don't try. They may be missing out on wonderful experiences and they could not even know it. Fixed. we are all constantly praised and we think that assignments are impossible rather than difficult Tuesday, August 31, 2010
  3. 3. I think (pertaining to school) most of my friends have a fixed mindset. I know most of my friends will stress over a test and be crushed if they see a grade below B. It's even sometimes like a competition. Lots of people asked me last year what my grade was, so that they can compare theirs to mine. They think that a higher grade is the only thing that matters. A lot of people even copied my work, because a higher grade mattered to them more than understanding the material. Tuesday, August 31, 2010
  4. 4. What mindset do you have? I think that I have a fixed mindset, where I care a lot about whether I am good at this, and that I can never improve or change. It also goes along with the stress treadmill. Part of the reason I can't get off is because my mindset is based on the success that I have as well as the failure. I think I have a fixed mindset as well. I sometimes feel like I'm not smart enough or don't know enough. I admit sometimes I don't speak out for fear of looking unintelligent.

  5. 5. I think the majority of people have a fixed mindset. What everyone cares about is not really the learning, but the grades. If they learn absolutely nothing but get a 100 lots of people would be happy. I think most of my peers and friends have the fixed mindset because all they ever talk about in terms of grades or classes is how they start out aiming for an A in the class, but don't care about learning or getting the high A. They all get the quiz or test back and go straight to the grade, not think about what they missed and how they can do better next time. For instance, in spanish my friend next to me got the quiz back, so the 86, and quickly put the quiz in his binder without looking at what he got wrong because he felt he had seen enough already.

  6. 6. I think with the pressure of school a lot of kids tend to have a fixed mindset.They only care about the answers for questions, not the work on how to get there, or if they understand it. Some of my friends still have a growth mindset. In the junior high Mr. A constantly told us about growth mindsets and how important they are. The people with growth mindsets do not give up and will try over and over again until they get things right and understand them. They really strive to do their best, not just what is expected. Most of my peers at <redacted> have a fixed mindset. Students here are typically only concerned for the final letter grade that they get. I think that most people try to have a growth mindset, but it's hard. When someone fails a math test here, their initial reaction is not usually "Oh well, at least I'll learn from these mistakes." No, they are usually freaking out that their grade is a 60 and saying that their parents will kill them. I have even seen a girl get a 90 and cry because she said she did not do good enough. Now that is for sure not a growth mindset. Tuesday, August 31, 2010
  7. 7. What mindset do you have? This really isn't a question I want to answer, because I feel like in everything else I want to have an answer that seems like I have "succeeded", like I have the all-powerful open mindset and somehow have overcome all norms. This isn't the case. I feel like I am smart, or that people tell me I'm smart, or that being admitted to <redacted> makes me smart, or even my grades make me smart. But smart can make me hesitant to fail. I don't like to fail, and I really, really don't like to fail in front of my peers at school. So it's hard to say, really hard for me, but I guess that I have a fixed mindset. Tuesday, August 31, 2010
