Fixed mindset vs. flexible mindset

Sometimes it is hard for us, as teachers to motivate our students, but watching some videos about mindset, it opened my eyes. It is not easy to get to know your students, and it takes time. It is important that they trust you as a teacher and that you have a growth mindset to be able to teach them that it is ok to make mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes, but sometimes to put our expectations so high that it is hard to keep up. Students do the same thing. They want to be good and school is a competitive place. Some students are so ashamed of making mistakes that they isolate themselves. We should teach students that making mistakes can be an opportunity to  learn something new.
