Mindsets are the series of beliefs people hold about themselves, which determine their behaviour, outlook and attitude. This lesson explores the concepts of ‘failure’ and ‘mindset’ and helps students understand the importance of approaching tasks and challenges with a growth mindset. This is critical for students' development of resilience and confidence when approaching new tasks.
Students understand that learning happens through failure, effort and hard work, and that a growth mindset is the key to this process and to making progress.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
- understand that the language and self-talk we use can assist in developing and improving how we learn
- recognise that failing is a necessary part of learning
- recognise that both a fixed and a growth mindset are possible in different contexts
- understand that we can change our mindset.
