How can you help build resilience in your maths students? This afternoon session will look at which pedagogical approaches help to do this, and also what language and behaviours improve pupils' independence and resilience when tackling mathematical problems.
- Understand why some pupils give up when tackling maths problems
- Explore which pedagogical approaches help build resilience in learners
- Understand how reinforcing a Growth Mindset can help build resilience in young learners
Who will benefit from attending?
This session would benefit any teachers of Key Stage 3 or 4 mathematics, whether they are NQTs or experienced teachers or Heads of Department, especially if they are noticing that pupils in their lessons "give up" or lack "stickability". Teaching Assistants working within maths departments will also find this session useful.
Materials and Equipment
Please bring along half a dozen GCSE past papers which you will use in the session.
Any teacher or Teaching Assistant (of any subject) wishing to attend may do so, although this is aimed primarily at teachers of mathematics.
