Inclusion Corner: Encouraging our Students to Have a Growth Mindset

A leading researcher in the field of motivation theorizes there are two groups of people in the world: people with a "growth mindset" and people with a "fixed mindset." The growth mindset leads to a desire to learn from mistakes, embraces challenges and persists in the face of setbacks. The fixed mindset wants to avoid challenges, and gives up easily; and sees effort as fruitless.
