Growth Mindsets

In this course you will:

  • Understand the difference between growth mindsets vs fixed mindsets and how having a growth mindset in the classroom can support, engage and motivate students in their learning
  • Learn how developing grit in students can improve their success in learning activities and build resilience
  • Develop strategies such as visual tools and language that promote growth mindsets in the classroom to improve learning, self-efficacy and student well-being


A Growth Mindset is important to support students to seek appropriately challenging learning and persevere in the face of obstacles they encounter in their lessons and activities.

In her second course with the Relief Teacher Association, Zebedee Freidman introduces us to growth mindset concepts and practices that support our students to be responsible risk takers and resilient learners.

A mix of down to earth delivery, practical content and fun activities awaits you in this course!
