Effective Effort Lesson Plan and Materials for Middle and High School Students - a MUST-DO activity for teaching growth mindset on the first days of school or as a mid-year check-in!
This product features an engaging "Effective Effort Talk" activity that will have your students thinking, writing, moving, and speaking about effective effort and growth mindset. In this activity, they must choose between 6 different quotes about effort from famous figures like John F. Kennedy and Theodore Roosevelt and articulate why the quote aligns with their own perspective using their own experiences to explain their opinion. I use this lesson every year to set the tone for the effort I expect for them to put into my class - it is a great way to gain insight about what they currently think about effort and can be referenced throughout the entire year!
- Comprehensive Lesson Plan
- "Effective Effort Talk" Sheet for students to fill out
- 6 Corresponding "Effort Quote" signs to hang up around your room
This lesson plan is recommended for middle and high school students in any
