A Mindset for Learning: Human Being Practice


So much of the work that Kristine Mraz and Christine Hertz put into their new book drew from trial-and-error. How much should you focus on persistence? On resilience? When is self-talk most effective?

A Mindset for Learning: Teaching the Traits of Joyful, Independent Growth follows the work Carol Dweck, Daniel Pink, Art Costa, and others, and it pairs research—psychological, neurological, and pedagogical—with practical classroom help, including instructional language, charts and visuals, teaching tips, and classroom vignettes. Today, the book's coauthors describe the balance of their work with mindsets.
