Helping Students Develop a Growth Mindset

Former guest John Spencer has a fantastic podcast, The Creative Classroom (iTunes link). This week, he talked about how his son wanted to start a cubing club where kids would get together and talk about how to solve Rubix cubes together. No one showed up for the first month, but his son didn’t give up. John shares how we can cultivate a growth mindset in our students like his son exhibited in this situation.
