2 Great Clips on Mindset & Learning

I love this 57 second clip with Carol Dweck on the importance of the word ‘yet.’

Everyone can learn. Everyone can improve. Adding the word ‘yet’ when you hear a student say, “I’m not good at math” or “I can’t ski very well” is an important reminder of his or her ability to improve with practice and time.



Three little letters, powerful shift.


Another clip I’ve stumbled on recently (thanks to Daniel’s Coyle’s excellent blog) is called Understanding Talent. It’s a great one to share with kids with an important message about the importance of practice.
