Assessment with the growth mindset
We need to remember there are two types of assessment:
Assessment FOR Learning- Here we can give feedback on the process and praise failure.
Assessment OF Learning
We want to shift the focus from feedback for a grade to feedback to add to our learning and improve.
The power of multiple people building on their ideas and providing feedback is amazing. The way kids give feedback is different from the way we do and can be very important for our learners.
You can used revision history and get students to name their process.
When and where:
You could use growth language messages in our Google forms confirmation messages.
If we want to create a growth mindset in your classroom, we need to make it our culture.
When we are giving feedback we often use statements, can we flip these and use questions that make our students think.
What are we praising?
The problem is we have all of these fraises that actually cultivate a fixed mindset.
This year has all been about language for me. We as a school are focusing on what language we use and the way we teach language. The words that we use in our classroom make the culture of the classroom.
Maybe the language we start with is the word YET.
We need to be building the language of positivity and growth in our classrooms.
We are teachers are the chief of mindset in our classroom.
