At St George's Technical High School in Middletown, Delaware, you will notice an intriguing awards wall in the main hallway leading to the cafeteria. At first glance, it might look like any typical awards wall, but this one is unique. Honored here are students who exhibit habits that show they have a growth mindset!
In a growth mindset, a learner believes that he or she can grow abilities and intelligence when exhibiting effort. Often those who exhibit a growth mindset take on challenges, learn from feedback and their mistakes, and use a lot of effective strategies to improve and learn. At St. Georges, Principal Shanta Reynolds said, "We wanted to celebrate kids for having a growth mindset - not just for academics."
