Open peer commentary on the article “I Can’t Yet and Growth Mindset” by Fiona Murphy & Hugh Gash. Abstract: Childhood is a sensitive developmental stage with lasting impacts into adulthood. Successful interventions that tackle poor learning strategies provide the child with a stronger foundation for dealing with adversity. Roleplays and immediacy are proposed as two methods of improving learning strategies.
