In a fixed mindset -
people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success - without effort.
In a growth mindset -
people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work - brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.
Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It also enhances relationships.
This resource contains a poster with a quote by Mahatma Gandhi, a display title
and 16 growth mindset statements on 8 slides to help you and your students with replacing the fixed mindset statements (under the feet of the illustrations) with the growth mindset equivalent (on the held signboards in the illustrations). They made a huge difference to students I teach and colleagues I work with, and I feel certain that these will be of benefit to you.
