One comment on “How Books Inspire Action: The Citizen Power Project

    I believe the best way to inspire students is to instill a growth mindset. When children find out that their brains are like muscles that get smarter when learning occurs, they have hope and work hard to reach their potential. Fostering a growth mindset in our young children can be as easy as reading children’s picture books like Growing Smarter. This easy-read is about a little owl who demonstrates perseverance, effort, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. As children embrace a growth mindset, they are engaged in learning, accept challenges, and don’t fear making mistakes, because they know they haven’t learned it yet. The best way to “level the playing field” for all of our children in the classroom is by adopting a growth mindset!
