Online book chat

“Mindset” by Carol Dweck (Stanford Psychology professor)  - online book chat around classroom and parenting implications of growth mindset. Three articles about mindset are linked on the home page of our Common Core Math 8th grade group on the NEA GPS Network.

The chat will begin June 28 but feel free to read at your own pace and respond to discussion topics as you can! The book is available online and in print at most bookstores.


Facilitator: Barbara Ransom

Get Connected - NEA GPS Network

The GPS Network is a free, open-to-everyone online professional learning community created and maintained by the National Education Association to connect educators, parents, and stakeholders in public education who want to connect, collaborate, share, and learn. 

Using a discussion-group format, it provides searchable data and resources that allow users to know what is important and to share what works for great public schools to support student success.

Anyone can become a member, anyone can start or join a discussion group, and anyone can share resources and post questions, ideas, and experiences with other site members.

The NEA’s strength lies in its over 3 million members, its local affiliates, and its state affiliates, all of whom are committed to providing great public schools for every student. The Great Public Schools Network is an online platform designed to empower users to do just that. Get involved with the other great minds in education today at
