GROWx3 is a curriculum of 8 scripted lessons that teaches and reinforces growth mindset concepts using an acronym of 12 words:
G=Grounded, Goals, Go-Getter
R=Ready, Resilient, Resourceful
O=Optimistic, Opportunity, Overcome
W=Worthy, Willpower, Winner
Students will learn the difference between a growth mindset and fixed mindset. They will understand that they can train their brain to get even smarter. Intelligence is not something that is fixed or unchangeable. Intelligence, abilities, and talents can get stronger with effort and perseverance. Students will recognize how a growth mindset, confidence, and self-esteem all fit together. They will learn to confidently face challenges with a positive mindset while building their self-esteem. They will be encouraged to reflect on past experiences when a growth mindset has helped them grow and learn and will be inspired to apply a growth mindset to all areas of their lives.
