Our friends at ClassDojo have something new and exciting to share!
They have partnered with PERTS, Carol Dweck's lab at Stanford, to bring the belief of intelligence "mindset" to classrooms everywhere through a five episode video series.
In 1978, Carol discovered that children who believed their intelligence could grow did better in school, and better in life. She called this basic belief about intelligence "mindset".
These five "chapters" can be found on the ClassDoJo website here.
Here is Episode 1/Chapter 1...A Secret About the Brain above....I just love this one and the other four as they explain learning, the brain, and mindset to our young people.
I love the Take-Home Questions that can be downloaded, printed and cut into four parts to have them take home to discuss with their parents and family.Mindset.
Mindset Kit, which is a free set of online lessons and practices designed to help you teach and foster adaptive learning mindsets.

Thank you again Class DoJo and PERTS for bringing us these wonderful resources to teach our students the importance of learning. These videos are going to make an impact on our school libraries, classroom and communities.
