In my building we teach our students about growth mindset. The teachers emphasize effort rather than outcome, perseverance over smarts. In my own classroom, we talk about choosing our attitude, Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Perspective can have a major impact on student achievement. If a child sits down at a math assignment and thinks "I can't do this" then they will find the task difficult or impossible. If the same child sits down thinking "I've got this!" they are much more likely to be successful.
Thank you for your post. I really like the project Happiness lessons and will be including them in my social skills groups.
