A practical guide to changing mindsets in schools.
If our schools are truly to bring about the kind of advances that are both desired and required by the changing world in which we live (and which our children will inhabit in the future) then things must change. And a critical part of that change is for schools to move away from many of the talent and IQ myths that presently exist. A Mindset for Success provides key practical steps that can be taken in order to develop a culture of growth mindsets in all classrooms and across schools. For head teachers and those leading the development of a culture of growth mindsets it gives very practical ways of involving teachers, support staff and parents in supporting growth mindsets in students. It also makes the link between growth mindset and emotional intelligence, both essential elements in the academic and social development of students, as well as providing clear tips on how all teachers, support staff and parents can, in a consistent way, have an impact on the mindsets of children.
Crucially, the book explains how a mindset for success can benefit everyone in a school, giving more meaning to learning that, in turn, brings greater fulfilment for teachers and pupils. A Mindset for Success illustrates how grit, resilience and perseverance can be nurtured in every child, enabling them to take on the challenges of life, which will lead them to greater academic success and personal happiness.
