Week 2-MOOC: Coaching Teachers- Promoting Changes That Stick

Following Week 1, I am continuing to sketchnote my take-aways from the MOOC: Coaching Teachers- Promoting Changes That Stick.

This week was a continuation of looking deeper at characteristics exhibited by a fixed mindset and recommendations on how to help teachers move towards a growth mindset. The videos and support material suggest to make coachees aware of the different characteristics, develop a common language to be able to talk about them and to work towards overcoming them.

The instructor, Orin Gutlerner, suggests to watch the sample videos together with coachees, in order to practice recognizing potential “Horesemen characteristics” in their own behaviors.
