Growth Mindset Research Project

November 13, 2017

The 6 th graders on the National team are doing a little research on leaders and change-makers in our world that have (or had) a growth mindset. Growth mindset is the belief that intelligence and abilities can grow and develop with time and effort. Our research focuses on what these people have accomplished and the ways in which they overcame the challenges they faced along the way. We are utilizing the LMS library website to find credible online sources, and learning how to properly cite those sources. Our final product will be a 3D model that will display what they have learned about their subject. They will have the opportunity to share with each other what they have learned as a result of their research. Hopefully learning about how successful people have overcome difficulties will motivate our students to persevere when they come up against obstacles in life.
