Growth Mindset

“When students don’t know how to do something and others do, the gap seems unbridgeable. Some educators try to reassure their students that they’re just fine as they are. Growth-minded teachers tell their students the truth and then give them the tools to close the gap.” Carol S. Dweck, Mindset


“Every day he tells his students that he is no smarter than they are—just more experienced. He constantly makes them see how much they have grown intellectually—how assignments that were once hard have become easier because of their practice and discipline.” Carol S. Dweck, Mindset
