Practical Strategies to Support a Growth Mindset in your School
As an elementary school principal in a large urban school district I found this book to be extremely impactful to administrators, teachers as well as parents and community members. We are working in a time with increased accountability measures and this book provides practical strategies for creating a growth mindset in your school. This book provides real world examples and suggestions for leading a school with a growth mindset and how to develop a growth mindset with staff, stakeholders, as well as during the day to day monitoring of the instructional program and our curriculum frameworks. I enjoyed the practical, hands on suggestions administrators can implement in our day to day work. More important for busy administrators is that this book is an easy read.

Convinced that the belief in a growth mindset will make a vital positive impact on the culture of a district and ultimately, each individual student, Ricci’s slim, straightforward how-to guide is a utilitarian method of setting an entire school district – superintendent to custodian – on the same growth mindset page.
