By Annie Brock

Infuse the powerful vocabulary of growth mindset into your lesson plans, feedback and student guidance
From the authors of the bestselling The Growth Mindset Coach, this pocket-sized, companion book is a must-have for any teacher looking to create empowering messaging in the classroom. It offers tips and tricks for meaningful discussions and ready-to-use phrases for students, parents or colleagues.
Instead of saying, “you must be really smart at this,” say, “you must have worked really hard.” Instead of saying, “you were naughty,” say, “that was a bad choice, what will you do differently in the future?” Instead of saying, “you’re a natural at math,” say, “these problems didn’t challenge you very much so let’s move onto something that will really stretch your brain.” Learn all of this and more using this clear and straightforward guide to implementing the most powerful Growth Mindset phrases in your classroom.
