Leading the Growth Mindset Classroom

Guiding and Supporting your whole school approach to Growth Mindsets

Last Year’s Initiative?

The two biggest concerns shared by school leaders I work with are...

  • How do we ensure that Growth Mindsets don’t become another of last year’s initiatives?
  • How do we embed and sustain this important work in our school so it makes a positive and enduring difference to our students?

We’ve all seen it before. We invest time, energy and valuable
resources into the latest educational trend. But all too soon we
move on, before the initiative’s promised, lasting changes to
teacher practice, student outcomes and school culture come to
fruition.

The promise of Growth mindsets is clear. In a distinguished
career spanning more than 30 years, psychologist Carol
Dweck’s research clearly shows that the development of a
Growth mindset leads to:

  • Improved motivation
  • Increased resilience
  • Greater persistence
  • Higher performance and more

Not only are students’ Mindsets important – teachers have the power to change them! What we do in the classroom influences our students’ Mindsets. Indeed, teachers are Mindset Makers who create experiences that build and support Growth Mindsets.

Sustaining Your Mindset Journey

Developing a Growth Mindset Classroom is a journey.

We begin by moving beyond the gimmicks to a deeper, more nuanced understanding of Mindsets. We then recognise Mindsets as a continuum, and our role as teachers in moving students towards a more growth-oriented mindset. As we continue our journey we refine and extend our pedagogy so our classroom becomes a place where students' Growth Mindsets are deliberately nurtured and supported.

What I’ve realised is that many schools start their Mindset journey with enthusiasm, but soon falter. They’re unsure about the next steps, unclear about the resources required or unable to access ongoing expert support.

This is when schools run the risk of letting Mindsets become “last year’s initiative”.

That’s why I’ve developed the Growth Mindset Classroom Online Resource. It equips schools and teachers with the strategies and support they need to make enduring differences to teacher practice and student learning outcomes.

Continuing your
school’s Mindset
journey takes
time. It requires
more than a
one-day
workshop. It
needs nurturing,
resources and
ongoing support.

Details and Registration

Getting Started

Your first step is to identify the Mindset Leaders at your school. These will be the teachers who are directly responsible for leading and managing the learning of the rest of your staff. Depending on your school size and structure, you will likely have a team of 3 – 10 Mindset Leaders.

Once identified, simply send the names and email addresses of your Mindset Leaders, along with your school’s details to james@jamesanderson.com.au. We’ll send you an invoice and get your team set up within a week.

The Growth Mindset Classroom

Practical Teaching Strategies for Developing Growth Mindsets and Achieving Growth

What’s in The Growth Mindset Classroom Online Course?

The Growth Mindset Classroom Online Course is a collection of more than 50 lessons. Each lesson contains a short video (2 – 8 minutes) featuring a key idea, concept or strategy to help you better understand how to move students along the Mindset Continuum. Most lessons are supported with additional downloadable resources or links to external resources.

The course is broken into four sections. The first section sets the scene by addressing key ideas, common misunderstandings and other ideas central to sustaining your work with Mindsets – and succeeding.

The next three sections focus on explicit teaching strategies to target students who are at the Low Growth, Mid or High Growth points along the Mindset Continuum.

This course is not about “teaching Mindsets”. This course is not an add-on to your teaching. This course gives you practical pedagogy that you’ll infuse into your teaching repertoire. Drawing on these strategies will help you focus your teaching on sending more growth-oriented messages to develop increasingly growth oriented mindsets in your students.
