The Growth Mindset Toolkit
Get 50+ practical classroom strategies that will create real change in your students’ Mindsets
The term Growth Mindset has become a bit of a “buzzword”. It’s everywhere: on social media, on our classroom walls. It’s the latest classroom initiative.
Many teachers are asking, “Is it worth it?” “Does it make a difference?”
Yes, it does – but we need to move beyond simply believing in growth to learning how to achieve that growth.
I’ve found that teachers can create real positive change with Growth Mindsets. The key is to understand that a Growth Mindset is just an invitation to grow. We also must teach our students how to grow. To do that, we need to move away from social media catchphrases, nurturing students’ Mindsets and teach them the actions they need to take to achieve real growth.
How do we do that?
We become teachers with the skills to make a real difference to students’ Mindsets, growth and learning outcomes. We become Mindset Movers.
Becoming a Mindset Mover is like being a multiplier for Learner Agency.
It helps students become better learners, quicker.
In this workshop, I will show you how you can become a Mindset Mover in your classroom.
I have developed a toolkit of over 50 practical strategies that will help you not only move your students towards a Growth Mindset, but also show them how to turn that Mindset into real growth and improved outcomes. These are strategies you can integrate into your daily practice without adding to your workload.
You will get tangible takeaways to support you in this work immediately, including:
- A deeper understanding of Mindsets, backed by research and supported by resources.
- A toolkit of 50+ practical strategies that will nurture and move students’ Mindsets.
- Visual models and resources for reference and ongoing learning.
- The Growth Mindset Style Guide, to support you in using Growth Mindset-oriented language in your reports, assessments and more.
I’ve already attended one of your workshops? Will this be different?
Yes – this is a NEW workshop! We begin with a short revisit of my previous course, and then we dive much deeper into the practical side of things. This workshop has a much stronger focus on practical pedagogy and school structures. Teachers who have attended a previous course and the Growth Mindset Toolkit have found it be incredibly valuable.
Join me to make a positive, lasting impact on student learning.
