Eduardo Briceno has an incredible Ted Talk on growth mindset and the power of belief. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pN34FNbOKXc
In his Ted Talk, Eduardo uses relatable examples and data to show that building resilience and grit are not as effective as addressing the mindsets of students. I successfully used this handout with 7th graders but could easily see it being used at the high school level as well. Get your students thinking about how their mindset can impact their efforts and their outcomes!
Stop the video after he discusses the particular points on the handout and allow students silent time to think and formulate their own answers. Then, you're able to use a multitude of protocols for them to engage in discussion in pairs, small groups, or whole class about what they wrote.
