Every Classroom Should Have This Infographic

Standard

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Dr. Carol Dweck is a must read for every parent, teacher and student. As a matter of fact, it should be read by everyone.

Parents and teachers should stop labeling students as “smart” or “dumb” or as “good” or “bad”. Instead they should be taught that everyone is capable of anything one puts his or her mind to.

Moreover, I think the two mindsets should explained to every student and the infographic be hanged in every classroom and house everywhere as a reminder of the two mindsets. Maybe also assign the book for reading as part of the reading list?

Do yourself a favor and read this book. And if you’re a teacher or parent take the effort of explaining the two mindsets and treat your students and children accordingly. Don’t praise or criticize them by labeling them by words, instead explain that they are capable of anything they put their mind and hard work into.
