There’s a great deal out there on Mindsets and their implications for education. If you want to really understand what it’s all about and the deeper reasoning and research behind it Dweck expresses it in an accessible and fluid style.
Breaking down the impact of self esteem and the effect it has on motivation and achievement Dweck makes a compelling argument to develop growth Mindsets for ourselves and our learners.
Packed with research and anecdotes to illustrate key points this is a seminal piece on the cognitive theory of Mindsets which should be read by everyone interested in student achievement.
