Art work and the inner child

I was wandering around one the elementary schools this morning admiring the artwork on the wall. I love how they have some framed and presented from contests in years past.

I love this pic by Donald Thomas in 2001.

As I wandered down the hall I saw some great current art work as well. But this assignment caught my eye.

It got me thinking about Carol Dweck and her idea of mindset. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICILzbB1Obg

Which of the words that the students used to describe themselves are examples of fixed mindset and which are examples of growth mindset? I haven’t even looked at the individual words yet. I’m just going to copy them down below and let everyone look at them together.

tough, smart, funny, brave, strong, wild, loving, wonderful, sweet, crazy, fun, awesome, nice, lucky, cool, confident, wacky, kind, sensitive
