‘Mindset’ formed the main part of enterprise in school from 2010 onwards. This can be read in ‘Journal version Learning at St Mary’s’
I have put a variety of resources here for you to browse through. A good starting point is to look at the two presentations about ‘Mindset’ for adults and children,;
Parents resilience presentation is interesting and I showed it at two consecutive year 6 evenings in 2009 and 2010.
The Problem with Praise revised is a great presentation for background information and theory.
There are some media references and journal articles which provide background and hard theory respectively.
I have included A Parent’s Dilemma question. Do this after you have been through the presentations or read the articles.
I have yet to include the links to the media, much of which can be found on YouTube but that will follow.
These show the first steps of what we are trying to do to increase resilience in your children and how failure is actually a good thing to learn from. I owe the bulk of these presentations to the Scottish, ‘Centre for Confidence’ but I have adapted them to our needs.
