The aim of this study is to determine if students in special education receive a benefit to their self-esteem by learning about the concept of growth mindset. Many times, students in special education find that their deficits become the focus of their educational experience. I hope to show that teaching children the idea of growth mindset, the belief that an individual can improve his or her abilities, will provide a positive boost in school performance. Data will be collected via surveys both before and after a series of growth mindset videos are shown to students that are currently receiving special education services. Each potential subject will have a letter sent home to parents explaining the study and asking for consent to have their child participate. Students will remain anonymous with pseudonyms assigned to participants for any notes, and a different teacher assigning all students a number for the surveys.
