Growth Mindset Displays

Two displays designed to encourage students to develop a growth mindset. They were originally put together for a maths classroom, but are relevant to, and very easily adapted for, any subject. Credit must be given to Sarah Hagan (@mathequalslove) for originally posting the ideas on Twitter. She has kindly allowed me to share my versions here.
