The idea of plasticity of the brain is clearly important, and helping students develop a growth mindset is something we should be doing in the classroom, and the wider school community. However this does not mean just put up posters about Growth Mindset, but rather work with students to see that if they put in the effort then they will improve, and also to be very careful about the language we use when talking about ability/achievement/attainment.
