The Theory of Growth Mindset

June 2019

I’ve chosen this month’s article with finals in mind. “5 Strategies to Demystify the Learning Process for Struggling Students” by Deborah Farmer Kris, is a review of Barbara Oakley’s works, which I believe are applicable for all types of learners. Oakley authored Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential, and offers courses that are taken primarily by adults; she’s done her homework in brain research and knows much about how we learn best. This article summarizes some of her optimal suggestions for true learning that I believe will be helpful for students, particularly at exam time, but in all of their learning experiences. These suggestions will also be great tools for students for the next academic school year. I also recommend Oakley’s book mentioned above as summer reading for both students and adults.
