2. Growth Mindset and Perceptions of Challenge

“Encouraging Girls in Math and Science” is a practical guide for doing just that. It offers suggestions on helping girls manage challenges, develop a growth mindset, and build skills in areas like spatial reasoning (by Halpern, D, Aronson, J., Reimer, N. Simpkins, S., Star, J. & Wentzel, K., 2007).

Resources that support implementation of the recommendations in the guide can be found here.
