  • The Fixed Mindset*You might like to use a highlighter to help you think about this.

    Characteristics of a Fixed MindsetRepercussionsMy intelligence is a fixed trait I have a certain amount of it and thats that.I worry about how much intelligence I have and it makes me interested in looking and feeling as if I have enough. I must look clever and, at all costs, not look stupid.I feel clever when things are easy, where I put in little effort and I outperform my peers.Effort, difficulty, setbacks or higher performingpeers call my intelligence into question, even if I have high confidence in my intelligence, so I feel stupid.I need easy success to feel clever.Challenges are a threat to my self-esteem so Iwont engage in them.I dont want to have my inadequacies and errors revealed.I will withdraw from valuable learningopportunities if I think this might happen.Even if Im doing well initially, I wont be able to cope with a problem or obstacle.I readily disengage from tasks when obstaclesoccur.

  • Fixed mindset*You might like to use a highlighter to help you think about this.

  • The Growth Mindset*You might like to use a highlighter to help you think about this.

    Characteristics of a growth mindsetRepercussions

    Intelligence is something I can increase through my own efforts.I am keen to work hard and learn as much as I can.I acknowledge that there are differences between people in how much they know and how quicklythey master things.I believe that everyone, with effort and guidance, can increase their intellectual abilities.I love to learn something new.I will readily sacrifice opportunities to look clever in favour of opportunities to learn something new.I am excited by challenge.Even if I have low confidence in my intelligence, I throw myself into difficult tasks and stick with them. I set myself goals and make sure I havestrategies to reach them.I feel clever when I am fully engaged with a new task, exerting effort to master something, stretching my skills and putting my knowledge to good use (e.g. helpingother pupils learn).

  • Growth mindset*You might like to use a highlighter to help you think about this.

  • Beliefs are ideas we no longer question. They are the thought programs running in the background of our minds, moving between our conscious and unconscious. Each belief summarises an experience from our past, a generalisation in a given situation, a way of achieving something or avoiding it. Each belief provides a shorthand instruction for how to behave.Some of our beliefs move us forward in ways we want to go.

    Do your beliefs hold you back in what you learn and achieve?
