Growth mindset

The way students think about learning has major implications on how and what they actually learn. At Shell Cove we have a strong focus on promoting a ‘growth mindset' in students. Our goal is to inspire students to ensure that instead of making statements such as "Well, I'm just not good at writing", they change their mindset to ‘I'm not that good at writing……..yet'. Our goal is to ensure that students keep trying, embrace challenges and take advantage of mistakes made, ultimately empowering them to become life long learners. 

Growth Mindset came from Carol Dweck. More information can be found here.
