At The Spark, Emily Diehl asks, "Is mindset culture shift possible for adults?"

Our constant communication of a growth mindset (humans can grow their abilities and intelligence from where they are) framed as our assumption of the human condition, not framed as “why don’t you have a growth mindset?” or “why don’t you stop acting like this?” gave the gift of hope and the belief in something even better than what we had.

Dana Johansen provided ten summer reading tips, just as the school year begins to wind down:

9) Wish lists: Have students jot down 10-20 titles (or authors) that they hope to read this summer. Students can hang this wish list on their refrigerator or in their rooms in order to remember which books they’d like to read. When they head to the library this summer, they can take their list with them. Model this work by sharing your own book wish list with students.
