Teacher Development

How we encourage students and the words we choose is absolutely vital to fostering a growth mindset

Research has shown that changing students mindsets can boost their achievement. “Students who believed their intelligence could be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those who believed their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset).” -Carol Dweck
Having children focus on the process that leads to learning (like hard work or trying new strategies) could foster a growth mindset and its benefits.
