Challenging Learning & Growth Mindset
“Challenge makes a situation more demanding or stimulating and is used to encourage students to learn more than they otherwise would”. ‘Challenging Learning’ – James Nottingham, p 46.
If we are not challenged, or forced to “wobble”, are we reaching our full potential?
We aim at challenging students so that they are able to wobble in their learning and then scaffold this to enable them to develop their new understandings then time to consolidate this learning.
Development of certain attitudes and skills are just as important as gaining knowledge.
To ensure our students develop these each teacher plans and prepares lessons that focus not only on attaining knowledge but also skills and/or attitudes that enhance learning. It is by teaching these alongside each other that students are able to progress in all aspect of their learning. This ASK model of teaching and learning happens across our school.
