This summer our staff is reading Carol Dweck's book on mindsets, which will be the topic of conversation during our professional work days at the end of August. If anyone else is reading or has read Dweck's book, I would be interested to know if her repeated references to athletes and coaches is perceived to be a bit overdone? I wonder who the intended audience for Dweck's book was? It seems that our society continues to confuse the concept of hero and celebrity. Teachers frequently refer to sports and music stars as a way of connecting with their young students, but I was hoping for more substantive fodder for professional conversations. Are there other authors who have tackled the topic differently? Whose views would you recommend that we explore?
