Summary of growth-mindset-advice-sheet

Advisory Teaching Service Advice sheet for developing a Growth Mindset These strategies are for use by all staff to establish and maintain positive attitudes to learning and a constructive atmosphere in the classroom. Areas of Difficulty:  Low motivation and self-esteem relating to school work  Lack of resilience and persistence in the face of a challenge  Low level of independent work  Low expectations of themselves Mindset refers to the pupil’s assumptions and beliefs about their ability to learn. Pupils’ beliefs or perceptions about intelligence and ability affect their cognitive functioning and learning. Growth mindset:  Pupils (teachers, all people) with a growth mindset believe that intelligence can be developed.  These pupils focus on learning over just looking clever, see effort as the key to success, and thrive in the face of a challenge.  Pupils with a growth mindset attain better in school.  Academic tenacity increases. A growth mindset is a skill for life. Fixed mindset:  Pupils with a fixed mindset believe that people are born with a certain amount of intelligence, and they can’t do much to change that.  These pupils focus on looking clever over learning, see effort as a sign of low ability, and wilt in the face of a challenge. Teaching and developing a growth mindset (see below for links to lesson plans and resources): 1. Teach pupils about growth, that brains have plasticity i.e. they change and grow as we learn new skills 2. Teach pupils about the concept of a mindset 3. Set learning goals (mastery) v performance goals (performance thresholds) 4. Teacher’s use of language – use of ‘praise’; use of reframing of challenge (good challenge) – see below for details on language 5. Teacher modelling, let them in on your own learning, making mistakes and persisting 6. Include parents in your approach, so they can do the same at home Examples of language to foster a growth mindset Effort Challenge Mistakes, good mistakes Trial and error Trial and improvement Outcomes Persistence Process Determination Not giving up Grit Resilience  Use the word Yet – you can’t do it/solve it/be the swimmer you want to be, yet. But you’re starting/working on it/getting there  In this lesson I expect you to make at least three mistakes.  If you’re not making mistakes let me know and I’ll set you more challenges.  Not being able to do something is how we all start out. Avoid using praise which implies the pupil is doing well because of traits, such as ‘you’re so clever’, ‘you’re amazing’, ‘I expected that super work from you’. Instead base praise on feedback on the task and on the effort the pupil has put in. Research: The growth mindset theory and approach is underpinned by extensive research. This is well documented in research and books by Carol Dweck in particular.
