Education consultant Marilee Adams discusses teachers and administrators who function with either an open, positive, curious “Learner mind-set” or a negative, closed and apathetic “Judger mind-set.” Adams explains how an administrator or teacher’s point of view affects learning, intelligence and conflict management. Adding 12 useful attitude-shaping tools in a 30-page workbook at the back of the volume, Adams presents a parable about a sixth-grade teacher who considers quitting teaching. Her mentor heightens her dedication, teaches her about mind-sets and challenges, and inspires her to change her mental approach so that she can become a better teacher. getAbstract recommends Adams’s helpful guidance to K-12 teachers, university professors, as well as school principals and education administrators.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to recognize your mind-set,
- How “Learner” and “Judger” mind-sets affect you and your students, and
- How to change your mind-set.
