Reseña del editor:

Whatever it is that makes you you, can you affect it? Your answer to that question gives us a glimpse into your 'mindset'. People with fixed mindsets believe that fundamental qualities like intelligence are essentially stable; people with growth mindsets believe that such qualities can be developed and nurtured. As teachers, if we can foster growth mindsets in our students the results will be transformative. Barry Hymer and Mike Gershon begin by explaining how learners with growth mindsets are: more open to challenges and constructively critical feedback; resilient in the face of obstacles and initial failure; convinced that effort makes a difference; able to learn well with and from others; likely to rise to the top - and stay there. Practical strategies for developing this kind of learner is the focus of the rest of the book throughout which cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text. The chapter Trial and Error is about high challenge tasks and the value of errors, mistakes and initial failure. Later chapters cover what exactly is meant by effort and how to make it appeal to students; the theory and practice of feedback (as opposed to praise and prizes); acquiring meta-cognitive tools for 'thinking about thinking' and 'learning about learning'; the power of language and drama to raise awareness of growth mindsets; and growing group growth mindsets. Former teacher Barry Hymer is now Prof. of Psychology in Education at the University of Cumbria. He wrote the Gifted & Talented and P4C Pocketbooks. Education consultant Mike Gershon's online teaching tools have been viewed/downloaded more than 2 million times by teachers in over 180 countries.

Críticas:

I am delighted to recommend this important book. The authors explain my research on students' motivation and mindset elegantly and succinctly, and show how it can be applied in everyday learning and teaching. With research evidence, classroom examples, and case histories, they show how developing a growth mindset in students can be transformational. The Growth Mindset Pocketbook has the potential to have a lasting impact on the lives of teachers and learners alike. --Carol S. Dweck, Lewis & Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

Small but perfectly formed. The core ingredients of 21st century education masterfully distilled into its essence. A must-read for all teachers. --Prof Guy Claxton, Emeritus Professor of the Learning Sciences, Winchester University
