what can i say to myself

Carol Dweck’s terrific research on the value of developing a growth mindset should be incorporated by teachers in their classrooms to help students develop a growth mindset.  Part of developing a growth mindset is revising self-talk — teaching students how to talk to themselves both when things go well and when things don’t go so well.  For example, instead of saying “this is too hard,”, you can say “this may take some time and effort.” This chart offers outstanding suggestions for revising self-talk.  Thank you to Fieldcrest Elementary School: Growth Mindset – Talk It for sharing this chart.
