Helping Create Growth Mindset Communities

What We’re All About

 

Pomegranate Lab was built on the belief that everyone is capable of learning and growing. Founded and run by teachers, we champion the needs and goals of fellow teachers and care about their students as if they were our own. We aim to fundamentally shift the conversation in education from one based on performance to one based on improvement.

Mindsets Matter

Fixed Mindset

Students with a fixed mindset see themselves as static and unchanging. These students fear failure, look down on effort, and never reach their full potential.

Smart People

are born smart and dumb people are born dumb.

Effort

is a waste and only proves a lack of natural talent.

Mistakes

“I wasn’t as smart as I thought I was.”

 
 
 
Growth Mindset

Students with a growth mindset see themselves as capable of change. These students learn from failure, value effort, and maximize their potential.

Smart People

weren’t born that way but became smart by working.

Effort

is the only way get better at anything.

Mistakes

“I’ll learn from this and do better next time.”

What do we do?

Diagnostic

Identify current growth mindset practice and key places in a lesson or school where our growth mindset strategies can make an impact.

Coaching

Work with teachers and administrators to built customized growth mindset playbooks filled with turn-key strategies.

Application

Offer feedback and metrics for growth mindset communities as the strategies are implemented in the classroom or school.
