Why Teach About Growth Mindset?

Research tells us that cultivating a growth mindset is the surest path to developing the kind of positive self-talk which is foundational for self-efficacy and a strong internal locus of control. Having a growth mindset is like having a compass which points to the "next step" when invariable mistakes and missteps happen. So instead of giving up, having a growth mindset inspires us to get up, get creative, get to Plan-B (or C or D :), get moving, and get growing!

Ways to Use These Growth Mindset Fortune Tellers

Use these growth mindset fortune tellers to introduce growth mindset to your class and/or supplement your growth mindset curriculum. Not only fun for classroom lessons, these fortune tellers are also great for school counselors to use in small groups and individual counseling sessions.
