The Change Your Mindset board was created to help and encourage students to have a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset. A fixed mindset is one in which people believe they are either good at something or they aren't. People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be good at something based on dedication and hard work. The bulletin board lists phrases that students might be thinking if they have a fixed mindset. Next to those are growth mindset phrases that student should try thinking instead. By having a growth mindset, the student's brain can form a new connection which helps to strengthen their brain.
