Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh will interview educator Kelly Elmore about "Why Growth Mindsets Matter" on Thursday evening, 28 August 2014, at 6 pm PT / 7 MT / 8 CT / 9 ET on Philosophy in Action Radio. Carol Dweck's book "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success" offers a new perspective on learning. People with a "fixed mindsets" believe that traits like intelligence or social skills are fixed and cannot be changed much. People with "growth mindsets" believe that humans have the potential to change the traits they possess and constantly learn and improve. As a part of the research for her dissertation, Kelly Elmore has explored the psychological research conducted by Dweck and other cognitive psychologists that led to Dweck's development of the concept of "mindsets." In this interview, she'll explain what mindsets are and the research behind them, as well as discuss how to apply these ideas to improve our lives. Kelly Elmore is working on her PhD in rhetoric and composition at Georgia State University, teaching freshman composition, helping her 10 year old daughter educate herself, and working with students from 8-18 on writing, Latin, grammar, and rhetoric at a local homeschool co-op.
