Growth Mindset in the Red Class
Growth Mindset in the Red Class
PS1 Communications

A primary purpose of Pluralism in Education is To educate every PS1 student in the way that works best for them. One way all Clusters at PS1 facilitate this is to investigate the notion of Growth Mindset. Learning about Growth Mindset helps students develop resilience and a strong sense of self as they face challenges and adversity.

Students in the Red Class considered the questions, "What is something that is hard for you?" and, "What is your plan to get better at it?" One student wanted to learn how to ride a bike so he started with an attachment to his father's bike. Another student wanted to work on getting better at soccer, and another, at the monkey bars! To help students learn more about Growth Mindset, teachers also read the book Your Fantastic Elastic Brain.
