You are in the right place to examine just how important developing grit and growth mindsets is for our students. This course is designed to introduce teachers to the importance of fostering grit and a growth mindset in students.
The course considers why it takes more than just ability or talent to be successful. Growth mindset and fixed mindsets will be compared.
