How can I work with students and families to build a classroom culture that encourages a growth mindset?
In an educational climate where intelligence and good grades are the markers of success, are we leaving room for growth and failure? My study examined how can teachers implement lessons and strategies to build a classroom culture that encourages a growth mindset. In a growth mindset, people believe that they can develop their intelligence and abilities through hard work and persistence. The opposing mindset is a fixed mindset, in which people believe that intelligence and talents are innate and cannot be learned.
