Use this life-long tool over and over again!

  • Set a tone of NOT GIVING UP during BACK TO SCHOOL season!

  • Teach important lessons if you ever need to fill a period.

  • Use this anytime to hit the re-start button in your classroom community.

  • Detailed lesson plans so you can leave it with a supply teacher.

  • IN-PERSON or ONLINE LEARNING.

TEACH students HOW to approach life challenges (Covid-19), systemic racism, and academic challenges with a growth mindset... in any subject.

  • We don't have to be perfect, but let's try to be better than who we were yesterday.

  • And, that starts with explicitly talking about challenges and strategies to overcome the tough stuff.

The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago. The second best time is now.

  • This unit is perfect for teachers who believe we can raise students with character regardless of what subjects we teach!

  • If you believe students need grit, tenacity, and resilience at school and in other parts of their lives, then this is a great way to explore GROWTH MINDSET and SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING skills with your students.

  • Try this SURVEY so your students can see what kind of mindset they have.

  • Watch these VIDEOS and figure out if teamwork is the same as collaboration. (Spoiler: not always.)
