Growth Mindsets Parent Meeting – 7pm

Growth Mindsets Parents Meeting

At Myatt Garden, we have been doing lots of talking and thinking about ‘Growth Mindsets’. Much of this work is based on the research of Dr  Carol Dweck.

In essence her research explored the beliefs children have about intelligence, effort, and struggle and how they impact on the choices they make about learning.

People tend to hold one of two different beliefs about intelligence:

Children with a growth mindset believe that intelligence can be developed. These students see school as a place to develop their abilities and think of challenges as opportunities to grow.

Children with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is fixed at birth and doesn’t change or changes very little with practice. These students see school as a place where their abilities are evaluated, they focus on looking smart over learning, and they interpret mistakes as a sign that they lack talent.

Come along on the night and find out more about what this means for your child and how you can help them develop a growth mindset at home.
