Intelligence and talent alone, without effort, create success.
Looking smart is most important
Growth Mindset
People believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work.
Intelligence is malleable.

Just Right Books - More than just a level
Growth Mindset in the Classroom
Effort is key.
Our goal is to help students...
- readily take on challenges;
- accept feedback and critiques
- persist through difficulties;
- see mistakes as opportunities;
- change their words so they can change their mindset.
“The harder I work at
something, the better I’ll be
at it.”
A growth mindset creates motivation.
"This math is too hard!"
"This math is going to take some time and effort to understand!"
