Meant to post this a few days ago, oh well. mindset by carol dweck, Ph.D.

Week 3
I‘ve read this before but I was feeling like I needed to read it again. I recommend this for anyone looking for a self help book

I think that Dweck's ideas about growth mindset (people can change and develop new strengths/skills/knowledge) vs. fixed mindset (people are the way they are, are naturally gifted/smart/good at things) are so important. I'm grateful to have learned about the theory and research behind them, and I‘ll absolutely use them in many areas of my life. I have some thoughts about the book itself (too many examples, many verging on judgy/insensitive; ⬇️

Christine too few practical tips; too little acknowledgment of structural and cultural factors that make growth mindset challenging to internalize or live by; too much portrayal of achievement/betterment as a measure of worth). But the growth mindset concept? Fantastic. (edited) 7d

My first book completed in the new year, in preparation for my new adventure. After a too-long break, I‘m finally returning to professional life and will be teaching college sociology starting later this month. 😁🎉 Just part time for now, but I‘m excited. So I‘m gobbling up teaching advice. This book had some good practical tips and suggestions for further reading. (I‘d love more recs, esp. with a focus on first-year and first-gen students!)

RowReads1 Straight forward expectations, different activities for different types of learners, extra credit is always good. Good luck! 2w

My reading goal of 2020 is to read just 10 books.

I've got several other BIG goals like becoming a data scientist, getting stronger and leaner, and becoming the best leader I can be at my job through planning and organizing.

If I'm spending most of my free time learning data science and exercising, that doesn't leave me much time for reading..... But since I'm doing a great job organizing my time already, I might surpass my goal!

To 2020!!!

Reggie Good luck!!! 2w

🦉This book really stuck with me this year. Not a book about educational policy per se, but could easily be applied if schools weren't run by bone heads (did I say that out loud?)
🦉The living room recliner (next to a window) or bed.
🦉Yeah. Exams week....where parents send the child to school even though they are exempt. And I'm just brain dead.
🦉Baby Yoda. No contest.

Most of the information I had found before reading this book was anecdotal or based on old wive's tales. This book, which has information based on scientific studies, was extremely interesting and I will be coming back to sections of this book for years to come.

This book is a must-read for anyone, especially students or parents of students. It does a great job of breaking down how our brains take in information and learn. It is highly accessible and the writer's tone is friendly and highly conversational. #learn #education #advice #selfhelp

I read this book for a class, and it was highly understandable and accessible. The descriptions were well thought out and helped me to understand what the author was trying to explain. Everything was organized into concise sections that made it easy to follow as well. #videography #textbook #learning

I've been intentionally reading a bit of this book for like a month and it has changed my entire thought process.

Have you read any life-changing book this year?
