Growth mindset

I’m planning on showing this video to my AVID classes in the near future. The tagline says: “Five videos for teachers and students on the growth mindset and why it matters.” If nothing else, scroll to Derek Sivers and Will Smith’s contributions within the embedded presentation. I think you’ll find what they say particularly helpful if you’re struggling with learning something new or creating art right now.

After viewing…

The point that stands out to me the most is if you’re always doing stuff you’re good at, then you’ll never get better at anything. Feeling like you’re not a master of what you’re attempting just means you’re on your way to approaching mastery–as long as you don’t give up.
