A practical workbook of activities designed to supercharge GCSE students' resilience, positivity, organisation and determination.

Successful students approach their studies with the right behaviours, skills and attitudes: they understand how to learn and revise effectively, they?re determined and organised, they give more discretionary effort and they get top results. Success at GCSE is a result of character, not intelligence.

The GCSE Mindset Student Workbook offers students a structured way to work through the 40 activities in Steve Oakes and Martin Griffin's The GCSE Mindset (ISBN 978-178583184-3). It coaches students to develop the key characteristics which will help them be successful at GCSE: vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude (VESPA). Based on the authors' collective 30-plus years of teaching and coaching, this practical workbook will enable students to break through barriers, build resilience, better manage their workload and release their potential.
>br>While categorised thematically under the VESPA umbrella, the activities have been sequenced chronologically by month in order to chart the student's journey through the academic year and to help navigate the psychological terrain ahead. Each activity has been designed with a pupil audience in mind, takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and allows space for students to record and reflect on their answers and to organise their thinking.

Sold in packs of 25, the workbook sets are ideally suited for GCSE teachers and tutors who want their classes to benefit from the GCSE mindset and are using The GCSE Mindset.
