Since it’s summer, perhaps you would like a little more reading material? If so, I highly encourage you to check out Deborah Kerschner’s blog on growth mindset. Inspired by the book Mindset: A New Psychology for Success by Carol S. Dweck, Kerschner blogs about her experiences as a sixth grade teacher and her mantra that “time + effort = excellence.”
“Teaching kids to adopt a growth mindset works. It teaches them that any challenge, no matter how daunting it seems, can be overcome. This is what we need all kids to know, to understand and to do.” – Deborah Kerschner
If you’d like to be inspired, view some of her most recent pieces, including:
- Snoopy, Michener and I agree – Writing is Hard Work!
- BFFs: Positive Thinking and the Growth Mindset
- The Growth Mindset and the Toaster Through London
