Fostering a Growth-Oriented School Culture
Students with a growth mindset recognize that the brain is like a muscle that gets stronger with use. Accordingly, growth mindset-oriented students are more likely to interpret academic challenges and mistakes as opportunities to learn and develop. Such a growth mindset is also associated with mastery goal orientation – students motivated by a true desire to learn. Explore strategies for developing and sustaining a growth mindset in your students and staff members. Engage in productive struggle learning experiences to build resilience and collaborate on approaches to implement similar activities within your school community.
