Growth Mindset: Trend or Real Science?
The following literature review begins by answering the question, �growth mindset: trend or real science?� It answers this question with a brief history of how, in the 1970s, the idea of �attribution of failure behaviour� from researcher Carol Dweck (1975) evolved to the well-known concept of growth mindset today. The discovery that the brain is elastic and intelligence can be grown led researchers to wonder the ways in which mindset could be manipulated to improve outcomes in education. The research then follows a path of growth mindset interventions in primary schools and parent guided settings as well. Finally, the review addresses cost effectiveness of growth mindset interventions and potential challenges of the studies.
