Growth and Fix mindset Perspective effects on Children with Learning Disability  (2014)

A preliminary review of the research suggests that the inclusion of children with any type of disabilities into a general education classroom setting, little research has focused solely on the children with learning disabilities (LD). Within these studies, there is no focus on students with LD involving inclusion on excluding them in some daily class activities. Studies have shown that even children recognize the need to have a better education for the children with LD within the general education classroom (Nowicki and Brown, 2013). The growth mindset perspective (Dweck, 2008), which is the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts, takes this into account and can change the atmosphere in a general education classroom. By implementing a growth mindset in the pedagogical style of a teacher, children with LD will received a positive educational experience and a clear understanding of the curriculum within their current grade level. My study will analyze the teachers' mindset perspective and the impact on children's educational experience.

My study will demonstrate the teacher's growth mindset perspective is providing a positive influence on the educational experience and a clear understanding of the curriculum for the children with LD current grade level.
