This book study is all about the book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain, written by Dr. JoAnn Deak. This book is a must-have for those of you bringing the concept of Growth Mindset into your classroom! Before even talking about growth mindset, this book would be ideal, as it talks about the brain in a kid-friendly manner. Students should know how and why the brain works, to connect that learning to the growth mindset theory. This book does just that and more... My book study focuses on each aspect of this informational text, reinforcing all the concepts taught in the text. Hearing it, reading it, and then doing practice with the information will help your students get the foundation they need to move onto learning about growth mindset.
