  1. Welcome to our Coffee Morning November 8th 2012

  2. Growing intelligence • What we are born with is just a start. • It is what we do that makes a big difference to how our brains grow.

  3. Intelligence is not set! • Learning makes neurons become denser, new neurons are added and they communicate more with each other.

  4. In some ways our brains are like muscles. • To make muscles grow we train harder. • Sometimes making our muscles grow can be challenging and it can be painful,

  5. Making our brains grow… • Takes effort; • Takes time; • Is challenging; • Can hurt!

  6. How are we helping brains to grow? • Teaching that we can make our brains grow; • Praising effort, persistance, resilience. • Teaching that we can learn anything given time, effort and help. • Teaching that learning can be hard but magical when you ‘get it’!

  7. If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. • Carol Dweck
