Starting a growth mindset classroom can come with some challenges! Read all about the mistakes I’ve made starting a growth mindset classroom so you can avoid them.
I have been thinking about this a lot.
I am a huge proponent of having a growth mindset classroom.
But it’s not all unicorns and rainbows…
Ok… let’s talk about big time fails…
I jumped onto the growth mindset bandwagon about six years ago. And it was a total flop!
In fact, I might have perpetuated a fixed mindset in some of my students more than a growth mindset. #shakingmyhead #wrongdirection
Looking back, I realize It wasn’t easy to teach, AND there wasn’t a lot of guidance to starting a growth mindset classroom.
Everyone was raving about a growth mindset and how awesome it is but…
…in my classroom, it wasn’t working!!!
What was wrong with me?
