Special Edition: Growth Mindset Memes

Today there's a special edition of the Bestiaria as a result of a "growth mindset" presentation at that conference last week: I've decided to create a new blog site with Growth Mindset Memes, including Latin LOLCats of course!

I'm guessing many of you are familiar with Carol Dweck's model of the "growth mindset" and its importance for learners of all ages. Because learning a new language is something that can be really difficult for beginners, I would guess the "growth mindset" message is one that would really benefit Latin students.

So, for this post, I'll paste in some of the Latin "growth mindset" LOLCats, and if you and your students want to join in and share some memes of your own, please do! You can find more information at the blog.

By persevering.

Errando discitur.
One learns by making mistakes.

Labor omnia superat.
Hard work overcomes all things.

Scribendo disces scribere.
You will learn to write by writing.

Discat, qui nescit, nam sic sapientia crescit.
Let him learn who does not know, for thus does knowledge grow.
