“Humans are creatures of habit. If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time.” - Travis Bradberry. Having a growth mindset helps youth to develop grit and overcome challenges that they might face in life. So how can you help foster this mindset in your youth? In this session, you will consider how your feedback can promote or detract from youth’s growth mindset. Through scenario role-playing exercises, you will experience how different types of students need different forms of feedback and you will come away with strategies to build growth mindsets and grow grit in ALL of your youth.
