Growth mindsets Divides students into two types: Fixed V Growth mindsets About 15% of students are in the middle, the rest are equally divided between the two theories.
Fixed mindsetGrowth mindset Believe that ability is fixed, probably at birth, and there is very little if anything they can do to improve it. Believe ability comes from talent rather than from the slow development of skills through learning. “It's all in the genes”. Either you can do it with little effort, or you will never be able to do it, so you might as well give up in the face of difficulty. E.g. “ I can't do maths”. These students believe that ability and success are due to learning, and learning requires time and effort. In the case of difficulty one must try harder, try another approach, or seek help etc.
How do you develop a growth mindset? Focus on effort, struggle and persistence Choose the difficult tasks Focus on strategies Reflect on strategies that work and those that don’t Work hard Seek challenges Focus on learning and improving Make mistakes and experience setbacks
