Product Description

This Growth Mindset: Themes of My Life project includes over 240 diverse prompts based on 50+ topics of your students' individual life values. Your students can mold this project to fit their (or your) preferred delivery method - journals, interactive notebooks, Google slides, YouTube vlogs, blogs, podcasts, posterboards, or illustrated diaries. It's so easy to differentiate based on your students personalities! You'll find this resource in two formats - print and go journal pages PLUS pages that can be projected on the board to save paper. This works wonderfully for a year-long project just as easily as a condensed unit any time of the year to maintain high interest.

Another option would be to use these prompts as Socratic Seminar starters or teacher-led discussions to fill in the gaps during your day.

This makes a great Friday journal project to use the entire year or as daily bell ringers, but is also a fantastic resource to keep your students writing at the end of the year as a condensed unit. You can also use this for teacher-led discussions and even Socratic Seminars. OR send this home with your students over the summer! This journal is relaxed, but guided. There's so many options with this project. NO TEACHER PREP!

The goal of this project is for your students to dig deep into their personal experiences, belief system, and bring to the forefront what makes them unique. At the end of this unit, your students will have a collection of all the themes to their own personal story.

This unit has been created with over 50 different themes. Each topic has between 4 and 5 open ended questions.

Pick and choose the ones that will inspire your students. There is more than enough for an entire school year. This is a great ongoing project that can be added to daily, weekly, or as often as you see fit.

Some of the topics that students are asked to delve into include:

• Honesty

• Marriage

• Music

• Fear

• Kindness

• Generosity

• Money

• Uniqueness

• Forgiveness

• Love

• Sadness

• Education

• Laws

• Art/Music

• Fear

• Imagination

• Goals

• Emotion

• Math/Science/History

• Government

• Technology

• Crime

• Stress

• Anger

• Personal Fulfillment

• Personal Boundaries

• Secrets

• Mistakes

• Laughter

• Friends

• Reality TV

• War

• Celebrations

• Family

• Mortality

• Beauty

• Loyalty

Have your students organize their journals in a slim 3-ring binder as they may run out of space in a folder. Another option is to have each student answer the questions in their own composition book.

Instead of creating a format where students write directly on worksheets, I have created this unit for as little photo copying as possible. You can either project the questions on a front wall or copy the sheet of questions and have students write on their own paper. Whichever you do, have them rewrite the questions followed by their answer. This will allow extra space for those who like to elaborate their thoughts.

Encourage your students to be creative and to add relevant artwork, famous quotes, or poetry to their journal.
