For today's PSHE activity,
I would like us to have a look at Fixed Mindsets and Growth Mindsets.
When we were in school, we had a look at helpful thinking and unhelpful thinking which were the same as growth mindset and fixed mindset.
If you were doing a Maths problem that you find difficult...
If you have a fixed mindset (unhelpful thinking) you might:
Say "I can't do this", close your book and not try again.
Not put your hand up to get help.
Say "I'm stupid" and give up.
If you have a growth mindset (helpful thinking) you might:
Say "This is tricky but I will try and use a different method"
Ask a friend for help.
Ask a teacher for help.
Say "I am good at Maths, this will just take a little bit longer to solve"
For the activity
Firstly, watch the YouTube video below which explains how a Growth Mindset works.
Secondly, read through the Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset document.
Finally, complete the goal setting activity which will help you develop your Fixed Mindset into a Growth Mindset.
