Teach children about their potential for learning

Stanford University professor Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. and her colleague Lisa Sorich Blackwell, Ph.D. developed a program for school children to learn that it is possible for them to succeed in learning beyond what they may currently believe about themselves.

Along the way, children are given the impression that only certain people can succeed at learning certain subjects or in general.

 

Once the idea takes hold in a child's mind or a classroom full of children, it severely limits the progress the students will make.

 

It is also very destructive when a parent or teacher believes it about a child.
