Bringing a Growth Mindset to school - some wise words

posted Sep 3, 2017, 10:18 AM by Tracy Mertz

I am pleased to share the following wise words from Ms. Spinella "Research has shown that people who have growth, rather than fixed, mindsets are more likely to work harder, stick with a difficult task, recognise where they  are successful and where they can still improve. For a deeper understanding check out this video, called the Learning Pit, with your child.  With effort and practice, the human brain can develop stronger pathways and tasks become less difficult. One small word- YET- can turn “I can’t do this” into “I can’t do this YET”. The power of “YET” is strong and should not be underestimated !" Yay for Growth Mindset and the Learning Pit!
