Want to learn how to encourage your students to be persistent and keep an open mind? I am excited to share my research because it has helped my students learn that it is alright to make mistakes, that we can grow and change our brain and that we have to practice...a lot. In my research I wanted to further investigate the connection between having a growth mindset and academic success. I did this with 20 kindergarteners so I know that you can do it too, with any grade level or group of students.
