Challenging Mindset

By James Nottingham and Bosse Larsson

This book answers key questions about Carol Dweck’s theory of Mindset – What is a ‘growth mindset’ and what difference can it make? Why are growth mindset interventions not working in schools (yet) and what can be done to change this? What is a ‘failure mindset’ and why is it more influential than an adult’s fixed or growth mindset?

I consider the book to be compulsory reading in all teacher education. It should be in every workplace where teaching occurs. (Originally in Swedish, quoted online at Pedagog Mölndal
