This is the first time I’ve heard of Carol Dweck, but I have heard a bit about the growth mindset. I don’t remember how I learned about it but as I grew up I knew that believing that you can do something is half the battle. When it comes to school I try my best to never go into anything thinking that it is impossible. I am always open to trying new things and never assume that it’s impossible to learn. I think that it’s very important that teachers are working to insure that students are in a state of mind that as long as they are working towards a goal they can succeed. Teachers need to be available to help students who are struggling so that they don’t fall behind and believe that catching up is pointless.
