Growth mindset, grit, and self-regulation are all terms that teachers and parents have been hearing a lot lately. Drawing on research into the importance of growth mindsets and self-control, Keep Growing shows how teachers can provide opportunities for students to develop traits that will make them better able to face challenges and recover from setbacks. It supports the creation of a practice-based environment that helps teachers transform theory into teachable moments. This practical book provides strategies, activities, and assessment tools that will help children to change their mindsets and foster their desire to tackle difficult tasks, their ability to push through challenging work, and their application of what they have learned. It also offers suggestions for home–school communication that will help you build stronger partnerships and keep students and their learning growing, inside the classroom and out.
