PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Growth Mindset Reading Comprehension For Middle and High School

This is a lesson plan that contains a reading comprehension activity for middle and high school students about growth mindset. Growth mindset, in a nutshell, is the belief that intelligence is not fixed and that hard work helps make you "smarter." The article discusses how the brain grows stronger the more it practices a skill, thus having a growth mindset is important when encountering new material for the first time. This growth mindset lesson plan is aligned to CCSS anchor standard RI1. It DOES NOT contain the text to the article, but there is a link to find it online. If you cannot access the article, please ask a question or email gritgrindteach@gmail.com. This way, you'll ensure you have what you need before using and evaluating the product.

In this lesson, students complete an anticipation guide about growth mindset, read an article designed to help them understand growth mindset and fill out comprehension questions. Then, they revisit the anticipation guide and determine what the author believes about the statements by supplying evidence from the text. Finally, students create an action plan for improving growth mindset through the course of the year.

This growth mindset reading comprehension is a great lesson plan for the beginning of the year. It will really help your students develop a "growth mindset" by understanding how the brain works when learning new information.
