PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Want to push your students to read more challenging non-fiction?

Want your students to learn why a fixed mindset is detrimental?

Want to engage your students in metacognitive questions on their reading habits and expectations?


Explore the importance of growth mindset with this lesson on a challenging non-fiction article.

In the article featured in this lesson, Malcolm Gladwell explores the relationship between a fixed mindset and the Enron scandal. Gladwell is a great choice for teaching literary non-fiction in your class. A staff writer for The New Yorker, he is also the author of The Tipping Point, Outliers, and Blink.

The resource includes questions for close reading, questions for discussing the process of reading a difficult text, an answer key, and a summative assessment.

A copy of the article is not included in this resource because of copyright reasons.


This lesson is appropriate for ELA classes as well as history, psychology, or social studies classes; it would make a great addition to an AP Language class.

Want to further explore growth mindset with your classes? Want challenging non-fiction passages, a research project, and challenging poems? Want ready-to-go handouts for all of those lessons? Want multiple options for assessment? Want to save money as well? Check out my Growth Mindset Unit Bundle.
