What is a growth mindset?

You've probably heard about the importance of having a growth mindset, but what exactly does that mean? Let’s start by reading this quote from Carissa Romero’s Tch blog post:

“People with a fixed mindset believe intelligence is innate. This belief can make school a threatening place. It becomes a place to go to learn how smart you are — or how smart you’re not. People with a growth mindset, on the other hand, believe intelligence can be developed. For these students, school can be an exciting place, as it provides them with an opportunity to learn and develop their intelligence.”

Let's help make school an exciting place for all learners by modeling and teaching about growth mindset. Start by diving into the questions below or take a look at the resources on this page. Let’s grow our brains together as we learn, ask questions, and share our experiences around this exciting topic.
