The Theory of Growth Mindset

November 2018

In case you missed it, the attached article, “Two Very Different Local Teachers with Help from 'Brutally Honest' Students Pen SAT Prep Book” appeared in our North Jersey Record on October 10th. I think they’ve beat us to the punch as I truly believe that our very own teachers and students could have written such a book! Pompton Lakes High School teachers Paul Koontz and Stephen Tarsitano have written an SAT Preparation book that completely supports our findings in our Growth Mindset study. “At its core, the book is about big-picture thinking, perseverance and developing good learning habits to unlock hidden potential. Lessons to embrace challenges and overcome failures are included.” And the authors are quick to tout the importance of good sleep. In short, practice and persistence is the key. When students are consistent in their efforts, anxiety is reduced and they are much more successful. I’ve already ordered my copy (which is currently out of stock on Amazon). Might be time to order yours too.
