I am a passionate business and economics teacher who tries to approach teaching from an interactive style. At times I feel that business and economics can seem a little dry for students and as such they struggle, my resources are designed to spark engagement and make the dull interesting. I am also a Head of Subject with whole school responsibility for teaching and learning and as such I create lots of different activities and documents that are useful for cross curricular working.

Growth Mindset Display

Growth Mindset Display

The idea of the display is to encourage students to change their vocabulary. The display is firmly based on the work of Carol Dweck and the idea of fixed and growth mindsets. The display is based on famous individuals who had growth mindsets and using their vocabulary to enhance the learning of the students and to encourage them to put in effort and to try. There is also an opportunity for a mistake and success board as seen in the picture as the central theme of the display, this is where you as a teacher can highlight both successful work and good mistakes. The idea being both really good work and work with lots of mistakes make it to the board, and the students see mistakes and successes as one and the same - There is an image attached to show how this works.

Business Education - Mastering (Revision) Display and Supporting Student Booklet.

Business Education - Mastering (Revision) Display and Supporting Student Booklet.

The resources is a display on the theme of “Becoming a Business Master”. This is Star Wars themed and is designed to engage students with revision throughout their course. Within the student booklet (which accompanies the display) it explains that the word revision will be replaced by the term Mastering. Simply because it has a much better sound with students and links clearly to growth mind set (please see other display for sale on here). The booklet also looks at the race of learning and explains to students the need for mastering throughout the course. If you check my other HW and extended learning resources you will see how this fits together. Within the booklet there is more information for students on how to do the 8 strategies within the display to make the display very interactive. The booklet also provides students with information on where they can get information from for their revision, with useful links etc to aid them in getting quality information together. I had a 6th form art student paint me a galaxy in the background on the display for added effect. It looks very engaging and draws students in. This is something that I have put in place for all Business Education course lines and as such talks in general and does not mention a course by name but provides students with the framework to engage in ongoing revision.
