Really pleased (and relieved) to read this recent article by Carol Dweck - thank you to two of our Scottish colleagues for bringing our attention to it. We had a growing concern about 'growth mindset' becoming 'a gimmick' and being 'done' to both learner and educator as awareness and popularity grew. The honesty of Carol Dweck's response in this article is refreshing and thought-provoking. We urge you to read and explore/reflect upon your own thinking and that of your setting/workplace.
