PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Carol Dweck's concept of Growth Mindset has a natural fit in the classroom! This Science and Writing mini unit was designed to guide students through learning about their brains and why having a Growth Mindset is so important. The end goal of the unit is for students to explain to others three tips for how to have a Growth Mindset, thus working on their procedural or "how to" writing skills. This is a great way to start the school year, but can be implemented any time of the year!

The following are included:
- A sample plan of how I used this mini unit in my own classroom
- Five activities designed to guide students through learning about their brain and why having a Growth Mindset is important
- Two templates for guiding rough drafts
- Published copy templates
- Craftivity examples and templates

The following books work well to introduce and guide this mini unit but are not necessary to complete it:
- Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak Ph.D.
- What Do You Do With a Problem? by Kobi Yamada
- What Do You Do With an Idea? by Kobi Yamada
- The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett
