Objective: Using the book Mindset: The Psychology of Success, by Carol Dweck (2006), Residents will integrate what they have learned about growth and fixed mindsets with knowledge of themselves; this integration will be demonstrated in a plan for avoiding pitfalls, building stamina, and learning problem solving skills during the residency year. Assignment: o Read and enjoy the text Mindset: The Psychology of Success, by Carol Dweck. o Listen to these two TED talks: https://www.ted.com/talks/carol_dweck_the_power_of_believing_that_you_can_improve https://www.ted.com/talks/angela_lee_duckworth_grit_the_power_of_passion_and_perseverance o Write a 3 – 4 page (typed, double spaced, font 12) response to this scenario: Stephanie’s dream job was Pioneer Valley Central School District where she lives, or Mayberry Central School District, the district near Pioneer Valley. She interviewed in Mayberry and did not get the job. When she learned she had failed to get the job in Mayberry, she immediately contacted Mayberry staff and asked for feedback so that she could learn from the experience how to interview more successfully. She used this feedback to improve her interviewing skills and landed a job in Pioneer Valley. Most of us, when we get rejected, do not have the courage to ask for details about why we failed. • What is your current mindset? • What is your plan for becoming more like Stephanie? o What will you do as a student in your courses? o What will you do as a resident learning to teach? • What is your plan as a teacher for helping your students to become more like Stephanie? In addressing these prompts, please use and cite at least three specific references from the book, one reference from each TED talk, as well as anecdotes from your own experience to support your points. In citing evidence from the book, please use internal citations in APA format, and include a Reference page correctly citing the book and the two TED Talks. *Write from a starting-up teacher point of view and simple language.
