Mindset is an interesting book that talks about fixed versus growth mindset. Fixed mindset is defined by people who believe their basic abilities, intelligence, and talents are just "fixed traits" an example of fixed mindset would be if a student gets a bad grade on a test and thinks "I got a bad grade because I am bad at this subject," Growth mindset is defined by people who believe anyone can be good at anything because their abilities are entirely due to their actions. An example of this would be if a student gets a bad grade on a test and thinks "I did not do enough studying to do good on this test, I will study more for next time," By reading this book it will teach students and teachers how to have the right mindset to be successful. Mindset teaches students how to think about their personal failures and successes and teachers how to help students have the mindset to succeed. Dweck makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, teachers can motivate their students and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach their own goals.
