For students to believe that “Smart is Something You Can Get” (Jeff Howard, 1986), they must hear that we believe in their capacity to learn. These messages don’t get delivered by osmosis, cheerleading, or signage. They get delivered by what a teacher says and does. It is not a matter of personality but it is a matter of behavior. This program teaches what it looks like and sounds like when a teacher acts authentically from a growth mindset.
