ED722 Week 9 Response

This weeks DLMOOC and ED 722 course focused on academic mindset. I find the idea of fixed verses growth mindset to be very engaging. This topic caused me to reflect a lot on what type of mindset I demonstrate as well as what type of mindset my students have. I also reflected on how I foster a growth mindset among my students or am I praising their intelligence and ability in a way that is counter productive. Carol Dweck's book mindset has such interesting examples of both the fixed and the growth mindset. In my Storify I included resources that look at mindset between girls and boys, in the area of sports, with age, etc. I really enjoyed learning more about the topic this week.
