What are actions teachers can take to help their students develop a growth mindset?
As Professor Carol Dweck -- one of authors of today's guest response and the developer of the term and concept -- has written elsewhere:
Individuals with a fixed mindset believe that their intelligence is simply an inborn trait--they have a certain amount, and that's that. In contrast, individuals with a growth mindset believe that they can develop their intelligence over time.
Influential author and speaker Dr Brené Brown tackles the myth that vulnerability is a weakness. Instead, she argues, it is the clearest path to courage and meaningful connection, and has the power to transform the way we engage and educate.
"Our capacity for wholeheartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be brokenhearted." -Dr. Brené Brown
"Empathy fuels connections. Sympathy drives disconnections." -Dr. Brené Brown

"Can you imagine yourself delivering a lesson with no words in it ? will it work? Well Peterson has an answer.
Peterson is a guy who used to have dyslexia when he was young and he did not learn how to read till he was in grade five. As an adult now, he designed some great applications to help teachers teach students without having to say a word. These are basically interactive learning games based on formative feedback. Watch the 8 minutes video to see the revolution Peterson triggered by the use of his free-language teaching approach. Enjoy"

Carol Dweck, a Professor of Psychology at Stanford, writes about attitudes toward giftedness and developing creative talent - for children and adults.
She notes, "The word gifted can have a fixed-mindset feel. It suggests that intelligence or talent is simply bestowed upon children through no effort of their own and, by extension that it should flourish through no effort of their own."

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports.
