Growth Mindset: Encourage Motivation for Learning

mindset[1].jpg

We have heard so much on praise vs. encouragement.  The growth mindset movement, mainly led by Dr. Dweck,  a leader in the field of motivation, demonstrates how praising a child for “being smart” can actually hinder his/her motivation to grow and learn.

I found the following list of things to say other than, “You’re so smart!”, from Schoolhouse Diva on Teachers Pay Teachers (for free!).  Thanks so much!

Try these to encourage children to grow and learn.  Let me know how it works out for you!
