Instilling a Growth Mindset to Prepare Students for the Future
Anyone should be able to accomplish their goals, if they want it badly enough. The American Dream is a goal that should be available to everyone but according to Professor of African-American Literature at Howard University, Sandra Shannon, it is “difficult for non-whites to also realize their dreams in this country” (Shannon). By implementing more confidence and motivation in students, everyone will be able to reach their goals. My research question is should parents and educators work to instill a growth mindset on students to prevent lack of motivation and confidence? By instilling a growth mindset in adolescents, parents and educators can improve students' confidence allowing them to accomplish their goals.
