Teaching a growth mindset in our classrooms grows our students, yet it's not integrated into our curriculum. If we combine ELA standards and a growth mindset, Voila!, exponential growth! When we think of success, one of the people we think about is Michael Jordan. But he failed so many times!! The article and accompanying lessons connects Jordan's growth mindset with the concept of "failure". Text-based questions and center extensions include Common Core standards and are aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy. Teacher directions for whole group and small group address numerous areas of an evaluation rubric. Links are provided for videos and informational articles for instructional strategies as well. There is something here to engage everyone!
