Hi Tracy
You might take a look at the work of Anthony Bryk.

As well as David Yeager. I've attached a document that was written as a
White House Briefing that includes some evidence for how short
illustrations can really help students open up to the possibility that with
application comes improvement.

There is a recent paper from Yeager and Dweck that borrows heavily from the
sort of foundational work advocated by Bryk.
