Learning Dispositions, Number 3 - 'Reflective'

This week we have been reflective learners. Being reflective encourages the use of a growth mindset rather than a fixed mindset and supports the idea of setting goals and reflecting on achievements.  Students have been working with the concept of growth mindset and are encouraged to self-reflect and look at positive ways to seek improvement. One of the words we have asked students to consider in their reflections is “yet”. Some aspects of growth mindset are:
· Believing I can do it
· Accepting myself
· Taking risks
· Being Independent
Students have participated in activities including innovating on texts to make them reflective, creating their own learning pits, daily reflections and goal setting amongst other activities.
