Product Description
Made famous by psychologist Carol Dweck, the growth mindset is more than just a belief in effort. There are a few key elements that must be included in any attempt to teach students to adopt this way of thinking, but once you do teach students how to grow their brains, the results will be astounding.

This two-day mini unit introduces students to the theory and starts them on a path to redefine areas in their own lives where they have a fixed mindset. After the lesson, students will have a good sense of the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset and how they can cultivate a growth mindset, but it will be up to you to offer them enough challenges to continue to stretch as students.

Included in the packet are links to the handout that Dweck created to teach her students about the growth mindset, a pre unit "quiz" for students to begin to understand their views on learning and effort, and questions on a TEDtalk video that will more fully explain growth mindset and fixed mindset to your classes.

The entire mini unit is ready to go with minimal prep on the part of the instructor. In fact, this would be a great choice for substitute plans!
