As a lifelong educator I have often asked myself why some topics such as social studies and language arts were easier than math and science? Why did I struggle when my fellow classmates, and later in life, colleagues, excelled in areas that seemed very difficult to me? A person’s attitude, their beliefs, or in layman’s terms their mindset had a direct impact on a person’s performance. This could never be more true than in a classroom. A teacher’s attitude and expectations can impact student performance. This article will discuss the impact of fixed and growth mindsets and how they impact today's classroom. The article will also review a new program in Ohio that focuses on changing fixed mindsets and developing a positive growth mindset in which every student can succeed.
