Dr Carol Dweck’s growth mindset research has proved revolutionary, but it can sometimes get lost in translation. This practical workshop will consider the day-to-day implementation of growth mindset. What does this actually look like in the secondary classroom and why is it important. We will discuss classroom strategies, including how we can embrace failure and deliver meaningful and thoughtful praise. Themes under discussion will include how we can adapt pedagogy to include growth mindset ideas, ideas for how activities can support this work, the power of parental engagement to support growth mindset, and what "normalising failure" actually looks like in the classroom. Ultimately, this workshop will discuss how we can encourage our students to embrace and talk openly about "failure" and bounce back from the setbacks they may encounter during their learning.
