Teacher - am I done? Can I be done with this? I love the idea of learning how to push yourself until you are proud of your project. Proud of how your persevered and finished a wonderful work of art.

The concept of a growth mindset was developed by psychologist Carol Dweck and popularized in her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.
Dweck focuses on the distinction between a "fixed' mindset (I can't do this. I will never be able to do this project) to a 'growth" mindset (I haven't learned this - YET. I know that I can set my mind on learning this activity.) Dweck's research shows that a Growth Mindset can lead to a love of learning, grit, and a resilience to challenges.
Thank you! Looking forward to a great school year!
