Just read an article from Education Week about growth mindset. http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/finding_common_ground/2015/12/the_problem_with_having_a_growth_mindset.html

I came upon this quote from Carol Dweck, and it made me again appreciate Daily 5 and CAFE. We provide both strategies for kids to use, and give them time to read and use that variety of strategies.

“A growth mindset isn’t just about effort. Perhaps the most common misconception is simply equating the growth mindset with effort. Certainly, effort is key for students’ achievement, but it’s not the only thing. Students need to try new strategies and seek input from others when they’re stuck. They need this repertoire of approaches–not just sheer effort–to learn and improve.”
