These writing frames are designed for special education students, English Language Learners, and intervention students. This scaffolded approach to writing allows special learners to access the writing process and express their thoughts on growth mindset.
The concept of growth mindset embraces the idea that intelligence is not fixed, but can develop and grow. Teachers who encourage a growth mindset in their students teach them to persevere, try new strategies, ask questions, and work hard. With growth mindset teaching, mistakes are OK to make, and are simply a signal to try something new, or to practice skills. Growth mindset applies to academics, sports, social skills, and life in general.
Growth mindset truly applies to children with disabilities, struggling writers, and children learning English. They spend much of their academic and social energy trying to succeed, while being met with many failures and obstacles. Students who learn differently literally have to work twice as hard to achieve success.
This activity can be used with all ranges of disabilities, and allows students with disabilities, or those struggling to learn English, a way to write about their experiences using a growth mindset.
