Growth Mindset: It’s Not the Only Mindset!

The term growth mindset has become wildly popular in educational circles over the last couple of years.  So much so, I’d say it has reached “buzzword” status.  That being said, I’m a big fan of Carol Dweck’s work around growth mindset and firmly believe in the underlying theory around her work, which espouses that students who believe they can grow their basic abilities have greater motivation and higher achievement than do students who believe their abilities are fixed, and that teachers can influence students’ mindsets.
