Learning to identify fixed and growth mindset language is an important step in cultivating a growth mindset.
Reframing for a Growth Mindset - transform the statements to promote a growth mindset.
Keep in mind that it’s natural to say neutral things like “you got it!” or “nice!” These phrases are neutral because they don’t identify an action or a stable trait. Saying “good catch,” on the other hand, would be considered process praise because the praise is linked to an action: catching. Saying “Nice! You’re a natural,” suggests their ability is a stable trait so this is not process praise.
