Today one of my students really surprised me, in both a good and a bad way.
My students were using the TOPS model to plan for their narrative writing.
This is this particular students planning -
I commented digitally on his Google Doc, and his reply made me speechless.
He replied "Miss that's not supporting my [growth] mindset."
Some background story - towards the end of Term 1, I talked to my class about growth mindsets and asked them to point out to myself and my co-teacher if we give them feedback that doesn't support their growth mindset, to make it a joint venture and share the accountability. Feedback that supports a growth mindset focuses on the learning process and what the outcome shows the child has done or can do, rather than valuing the outcome itself. This student was right; my comment 'awesome use of keywords' was not supporting a growth mindset, as it didn't discuss the learning process itself.
I didn't think they would actually do it.. but this student did.
I was slightly embarrassed to be called out like that by one of my students, but in his defence, I did ask him to..
So, another example of successful building of class culture. What will be next...
