What Is Growth Mindset?

Do you teach your students about having a growth mindset? What do we mean when we say ‘growth mindset’? Growth mindset describes the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. When students believe they can get smarter, they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement.

This teaching resource provides a visual reminder for your students of the characteristics related to a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.

Ways to Use a Growth Mindset Poster

This poster can be more than “just a poster” for your classroom. Why not try one of these ideas:

  • Print the poster and display it in a prominent place in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  • Print several copies of the poster and slip each one inside a dry-erase sleeve to have on hand when working in small groups.
  • Print on a piece of cardstock and place it on a binder ring. Hang it up in a position where students can access it, such as in learning centers/stations, near your work turn-in station, etc.
  • Project on the screen at the front of the classroom when discussing growth mindset as part of your social-emotional learning lesson.
