Growth Mindset for Ninth Graders

Grit, Growth Mindset

Why we love it: Created by PERTS in partnership with a team of leading motivation researchers, including Carol Dweck and David Yeager, Growth Mindset for Ninth Graders helps adolescents understand that intellectual abilities can be improved. Consisting of two 30-minute online activities, the school-based program has been shown in a national, randomized controlled trial to boost report card grades, particularly among lower-achieving students, and encourage challenge seeking.
