These boom cards focus on making choices that are positive and focus on grit and growth mindset.
Why is Growth Mindset important?
Research by Carol Dweck has shown that students with this mindset are more successful in school because they bounce back from failure and do not get stuck in a negative thinking pattern. These students also self report that they are happier and have more friends.
