Growth Mindsets are recognized as a powerful teaching and learning tool. To avoid misunderstanding, misuse or oversimplification, this new book explores what Mindsets are, what they are not and how effective use of them can support and enhance learning and teaching. It takes a focused look at whether a more general approach to mindsets for all learning in the classroom is more effective than a subject specific approach and explores who Mindsets can work for. It includes a chapter on Mindsets and SEN and also looks at wider issues of self-esteem, mental health and wellbeing. It offers clear guidance backed up by research and avoids quick fixes or suggestions with little evidence base. The text will appeal to teachers as a pragmatic and trusted guide to a well-known strategy proven to enhance learning.
