The Learning Renaissance

Embracing Failure: Building a Growth Mindset Through the Arts

We can be sure that in the course of their time in school, every student will experience failure. It is, after all, a natural and quite acute element of the learning process.

A child who regularly experiences failure, and has no mentor to help them to interpret and learn from it, is likely to lose confidence in their ability to learn. They will grow averse to trying new things, and to taking calculated risks and will be ill-equipped to thrive in the modern world where change is the most constant factor.

This US case study shows how you can be more reflective in the development of a comprehensive growth mindset for all your students.
