38. The Roy Watkins Elementary School Growth Mindset

District: No. 84 (Vancouver Island West)

In Gold River, teachers at RWES are exploring, via the Spiral of Inquiry method, the engagement of ideas from a shared study in very specific considerations of their practical implications and consequences. This allow a comparative process of inquiry into the manifestations and promise of the concept of growth mindset in sharing successes and confronting challenges together. By combining a shared practice of study and common engagement of method in specific instances (focusing each on a single child), the inquiry promised a richer understanding of growth mindset, proposed then as a fundamental part of school culture.
