  6. 6. A growth mindset in the classroom • Feedback (praise and constructive criticism) should always be linked to effort • Linking feedback explicitly to intelligence or ability may be counter- productive in the long term • Give praise for: • Taking initiative • Seeing a difficult task through • Struggling • Learning something new • Being undaunted by a setback • Being open to and acting on critique
  7. 7. In practice – always praise effort not ability If a student has done well praise the effort and strategy that led to the achievement. Avoid praising some innate ability.
  8. 8. In practice – use the language of yet If a student is struggling with a task or a topic use the language of YET. Focus on how with renewed effort they can overcome their setbacks and become better.
  9. 9. In practice – encourage improvements Growth Mindset students understand that it is essential to learn from feedback. Build in time for improvements and praise how the student has responded to your comments. This is just as important for those students currently doing well in your subject as well as those that are struggling.
  10. 10. A growth mindset for staff • Teaching and Learning Teams: • Improving feedback • Differentiation • Engaging students in learning • Developing independence and resilience • Using research to improve teaching • The growth mindset classroom “Every teacher needs to improve; not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better” (Dylan Wiliam)
