I recommend starting with the original introduction to Growth Mindset
and then introducing one new lesson each month
(one for each month of the school year). This way students can really develop a growth mindset throughout the year, and the material stays fresh in their minds. The lessons are meant to be given in the order listed and will make the most sense this way.
Although each PowerPoint has a different focus, there are many overlapping concepts presented in new ways to get students to take a fresh look and better ingrain a growth mindset into their daily lives.
