Success in education, especially learning given to students, turns out to be not only related to education with appropriate teaching methods and strategies, but also related to the approach to the mindset of teachers and students themselves. Approaching the student's mindset right from the start will affect the whole life of students in the future.
Students are not only seen as successful or not based on their achievements or results, but also the process and their failures considered a stepping stone to expand and sharpen existing capabilities.
but there are still many schools that are still too focused on the results rather than the process Teachers should provide support more often on the process rather than on the results. Intelligence and abilities will continue to grow along with processes that can be full of failure.
Students who have this growth mindset believe that their intelligence and skills can continue to grow and develop through effort and persistence. the most important thing is to learn. They are motivated to always try and work hard.
So how to build a mindset that develops in students? There are several ways we can do this, including:
Praise students for their efforts, not results.
how to evaluate students should focus on planning, processes, efforts, progress and strategies of students in facing challenges. Not abilities or results achieved. If we praise planning and process more often, students will get used to planning and participating in learning activities better.
Build a classroom culture that respects mistakes, so that it is an important thing in the learning process, This kind of environment will give children a sense of comfort to continue learning without fear of making mistakes
Every time a student makes a mistake, give an opportunity to explain the answer with a purpose to find out where the student's mistakes are or which parts have not been understood by students, and at the same time the teacher can analyze the strengths of each student.
