Teach a Growth Mindset with Literature

Teach and Develop a Growth Mindset using Literature

Mistakes, struggle, challenges, and perseverance are essential to growth and learning. Using literature and stories to teach a growth mindset is an effective teaching tool to show and teach children that mistakes are good, it is proof of effort and trying! When students fall down, fail, or struggle, students must get up, try again and again and seek help from others when needed to succeed. Parents and students must grow and stretch what they believe is possible with hard work, we must educate our families to see that we are not limited by our genes, backgrounds, experiences, or economics status . 

A few modern philosopher’s assert that an individual's intelligence is a fixed quantity, a quantity which cannot be increased. We must protest and react against this brutal pessimism.... With practice, training, and above all, method, we manage to increase our attention, our memory, our judgment and literally to become more intelligent than we were before. Alfred Binet
