Growth mindset is a mindset that helps teachers, students and people in general to accept challenges, love learning, learn from mistakes and persist when things seem difficult. The good thing is, that the growth mindset can indeed be developed with practice.
Are you interested in how to teach a growth mindset? A growth mindset describes the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. When students believe they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Therefore, they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement. A growth mindset creates a passion for learning rather than a hunger for approval. Its hallmark is the conviction that human qualities like intelligence and creativity, and even relational capacities like love and friendship, can be cultivated through effort and deliberate practice.
Teacher practice has a big impact on student mindset, and the feedback that teachers give their students can either encourage a student to choose a challenge and increase achievement or look for an easy way out.
