Here are 35 inspirational quotes that will encourage a growth mindset in all your students!
Growth Mindset Writing will have your students responding to quotes from the well-known and not so well-known people from different times of history and their words of wisdom. Their words of encouragement, perseverance, and never give up attitudes will help your students improve their own growth mindset!
Students will read inspirational quotes from Aesop to Oprah with many other people of their times. Imagine Helen Keller, Malcolm X, and unknowns such as Marva Collins and Jaime Escalante serving as inspiration!
To help your students with their writing responses, there are questions concerning the authors' words and how those words might apply to themselves.
Influential people and those lesser knowns had an impact on the society of their times, in the past and today. The short biography of each person in this product also gives students a chance to "meet" these folks whom they may not have heard about or known.
This product could be used as morning work, a bell ringer, an appetizer prior to starting a writing lesson, or simply as a station writing activity.
My students and I also share writing responses and discuss answers to the question prompts as a part of one day of the week's morning meetings!
The pages can also be printed and put on your bulletin board to serve as a reminder to students what they can also accomplish!
With 35 quotes, you could use these in a variety of ways including once a week for an school year!
I have downloaded this to my computer's desktop and I put up the weekly page on my SMARTboard. No printing needed!
