Research conducted by Dr. Carol Dweck clearly demonstrates the importance of building a foundation of growth mindset in order to build resiliency in students. Not only does this resiliency help students overcome challenges but also supports students in building lifelong skills, such as: forming and carrying out goals, receiving and utilizing feedback, and increasing intrinsic motivation in a variety of settings. The educational blog designed for this project focuses on sharing research relating to mindset theory, gifted students, goal setting, feedback, intrinsic motivation in adolescents, and curriculum materials. It also provides educators with free resources to begin implementing a combination of these practices within their own classrooms. The blog will mainly be used by upper elementary school teachers but is flexible and accessible to professionals who work within a range of ages and educational settings. The overall goal of the blog is to provide educators with easy to understand information to begin fostering growth mindset, goal setting, and feedback with upper elementary school students, while also supplying educators with materials to support these same practices.
