Mindset: How Our Words can Affect Our Students Ability to Learn.

Below is a thought-provoking article on how our langauge, through the feedback and messages we give to our students every day, can affect their ability to learn.

At MHS we are utilizing Carol Dweck’s book Mindset to help us address the issues of language discussed in the article above as well as to think about our own approach and perspective to our work.  Look for further mindset posts in the future and consider contacting us to take part in our parent-advisory discussions that we are hosting periodically throughout the year.

Note: Every staff member was given the book Mindset; we encourage you to reach out and talk with any of us about its implications for learning at MHS.
