Early on in the school year, we learn about Growth Mindset. It's based on a concept / book by Carol Dweck, and it has been adapted to apply to classrooms. Students are taught that effort and hard work are more important than thinking some people are naturally born "smart". The focus is on the journey of learning and growth vs the end product and a number grade.
