Carol Dweck: Mindset

Adult Enablers: What am I/my colleagues doing to enable my students to do?

  • Are we enabling students to succeed or fail? 
  • What messages are we sending?
"When people think that some kids just can't do math, that success in math is reserved for only certain kids, thought of as "smart," or that it's just too late for kids who haven't had the right background, then they can easily accept that many students fail math and hate math.  In fact, we have found that many teachers actually console their students by telling them not to worry about doing poorly in math because not everyone can excel in it."
