Talent vs. Effort

23 02 2008

I have been reading the book, Mindset, by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., and have been so excited about the ideas presented.  I’ m not sure how to implement them with the kids, but have been tossing in some elements of the book here and there.

This week, we had a discussion in social skills over the question: “Which is more valuable, Talent, or Effort?”

A really neat discussion ensued, and I recorded it and have it available via iTunes or directly at my Podbean.

We also started a discussion at my SchoolCenter Forum site.
