Do some of your students give up at the first sign of frustration? Do they seem more motivated by what you think than the learning itself? Do they think they are stupid, compare themselves to others, or believe they are ‘bad’ at a certain subject? These students have a ‘fixed mindset’, which makes learning needlessly difficult. You can help your students develop a ‘growth mindset’.
The principles of ‘Growth Mindset’ come from multiple bodies of research that prove that we all have the power to develop our own intelligence and skills. Persistence, resiliency, and working smart are more important than talent.
This curriculum includes 5 units that will help you to support your children in developing a Growth Mindset by utilizing strategies to:
☞ let go of negative and defeatist thinking,
☞ develop a more positive outlook,
☞ promote self encouragement of hard work,
☞ develop skills to make the most out of errors and mistakes,

☞ to set personal learning goals while working to
☞ overcome internal obstacles.
