Growth Mindset is becoming a popular topic of conversation in schools. It gets pupils to think in a different way – moving from a “Fixed Mindset” to a “Growth Mindset” by changing their use of language. This display resource contains a variety of examples of ways in which pupils can change their mindset.
This display resource is about getting pupils to change their language from phrases like “I can’t do this” or “It’s too hard” or “I’m not clever enough to do this” to phrases like “”I can’t do this yet” or ”It’s a great challenge” or “I will learn how to do this”.
You will notice that the “Fixed Mindset” phrases are in black/white/grey and the “Growth Mindset” phrases are in colour – this in itself should give a message to pupils.
The display should provoke good discussion with pupils, especially at the start of a new school year.
