Transcript of Growth Mindset at Revesby Public School

So 'Growth Mindset' is the ability to see your brain as being like a muscle and the ability that you can grow and learn and improve. When I was doing my writingI made a lot of mistakes. I thought I couldn't do it. I tried out for the Spelling Bee. I wasn't confident. I used my growth mindset and I made it to the district competition. When I do tests I sometimes get the answer wrong but the test happens again and then I get the answer right. To me 'growth mindset' is saying; never give up even if you don't succeed. To have a growth mindset I use the power of 'Yet.' If I haven't done something I say I just haven't done this YET. The focus is very much on the effort that is going into the work. It's not just about a grade.
