A Mindset for Learning: Twitter Chat Archive

mindset-cover-mrazhertzThursday night Heinemann authors Kristine Mraz and Christine Hertz co-hosted a Heinemann Twitter chat about their new book A Mindset for Learning. The chat covered a range of topics from the book. We started by looking at the differences between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, then tackled the “good enough” mentality with our classrooms. We also covered their “5 stances for engaged and energized learners,” and the importance of play. Read below for a full review of the chat and check back every week for video blogs from the authors.
