Growth Mindset Books & Resources
Dweck’s research found students with a growth mindset improved their academic results. The reverse was true of those with a fixed mindset. However, these results increased when children with a fixed mindset understood that brains are a muscle that build new connections through effort and practice. This knowledge gave children the confidence to learn and positively effect their achievement, engagement and happiness.
