In the geography department we like to create an environment that encourages a growth mindset. 

Advantages of a growth mindset include;

  • Students will look for quality feedback and challenge themselves for longer
  • Students will become more resilient
  • It reduces stress and aggression  in students 
  • It improves self esteem and attitude towards learning
  • It can help disengaged students.

How to develop a growth mindset;

  •  Use praise 
  • Have challenging but realistic goals
  • Create a culture and ethos of growth through asking questions and learning via our mistakes
  • Encourage students to have a conversation with themselves by reflecting on what they have achieved and how they could improve.
