Fostering growth mindset with English learners
from By: Erick Herrmann
From April 28:
Educators have been studying and discussing how to help students develop a stance of growth and perseverance — as opposed to a fixed mindset, where people see ability and skills as innate. Some believe the key to encouraging a growth mindset in students is to praise effort, rather than providing empty feedback to students through simple praise such as "good job" or "nice work." While this is helpful, it is not the complete picture, especially for English learners.
