Method 1: Growth Mindset and Grit

Short Description: Students and Teachers must both understand that ignorance is temporary and adopt a growth mindset instead of a fixed one. Show them they can learn, because many students do not believe they are capable of learning math.

Classroom Example:

  • Saying the right things.
  • Providing second chances to show they know something.
  • Involve them in reflection and goal setting

Supporting Literature: Dweck and Duckworth
