OnTRACK & Growth Mindset

Growth mindset statements

Here is a strategy I'm using in my classroom this year. In my classroom, I am talking about Growth Mindset. 

  • I praise students for their mistakes, "Because of your mistake,we're able to learn this idea." 
  • I reward students for hard work and the process of learning. "Have a star for attempting to figure out that math problem."
  • We talk about perseverance, resilience, the power of YET, and how they can achieve if they continue to show effort. 
  • We use On TRACK to talk about the courage it takes to take risks in learning. We also talk about tolerance in understanding that we all learn at different paces. We talk about accountability as students track progress and growth. 

My goal is to make students proud of their learning, even if it is hard for them. I've already seen growth in each one of my students in some area. 

If you have any questions or comments on the topic, let me know. I'd be happy to have a discussion.
