Look what happened: in this study,students who were not taught this growth mindset continued to show declining grades over this difficult school transition,but those who were taught this lesson showed a sharp rebound in their grades.

看看后面发生了什么吧:在这项研究中,没有接受成长型思维模式训练的学生,在这一困难的过渡阶段,成绩持续下滑,但那些受过该训练的学生, 成绩强势反弹,卓有起色。

We have shown this now, this kind of improvement,with thousands and thousands of kids, especially struggling students.

如今,我们已证实这一结论,通过成千上万个孩子的实例, 尤其是那些在学业上挣扎的孩子。

So let's talk about equality.

那我们就来谈谈教育平等吧。

In our country, there are groups of students who chronically underperform,for example, children in inner cities,or children on Native American reservations.

在我们国家,有些特定区域的孩子总是在学业上处于下游,比如,内城区的孩子,或印第安人居留地里的孩子。

And they've done so poorly for so long that many people think it's inevitable.

长期以来这里的孩子都没什么起色, 以致于很多人认为没的救了。

But when educators create growth mindset classrooms steeped in yet,equality happens.

但是当教育家们将孩子的思维转变为成长型思维模式时,教育平等实现了。

And here are just a few examples.

举几个例子吧。

In one year, a kindergarten class in Harlem, New York scored in the 95th percentile on the National Achievement Test.

纽约哈莱姆区的一所幼儿园的学生在一年的时间内,国家水平测试(National Achievement Test)成绩飞跃到前百分之五。

Many of those kids could not hold a pencil when they arrived at school.

这些孩子中有很多在入学时甚至还不会握笔。

In one year,fourth grade students in the South Bronx, way behind,became the number one fourth grade class in the state of New York on the state math test.

一年之内,远远落后的南布朗克斯区的四年级学生,其标准数学测试成绩攀升到纽约州所有四年级学生的第一名。

In a year to a year and a half,Native American students in a school on a reservation went from the bottom of their district to the top,and that district included affluent sections of Seattle.

在一年到一年半的时间内,某印第安人居留地的一所学校里的学生成绩从全区垫底到名列前茅,而这个区包括了西雅图市的富饶地段。
