This Introducing Mindset Self-Assessment Activity contains individual, partner, and small group tasks designed to introduce students to Carol Dweck’s Mindset research.
The individual self-assessment and informational text from mindsetonline.com help students evaluate their own mindset as growth or fixed. Links to follow-up videos are shared using QR codes, and group discussion questions are intended to foster ongoing analysis of students' attitudes toward learning.
Hoop There It Is recommends that all teachers educate themselves on Dweck's research. I have found that investing time in teaching mindset at the start of the year and reinforcing mindset with growth mindset practices and praise throughout the year are key to developing a positive, supportive classroom culture focused on learning!
Works great for homework, classwork, station work, and more. In science or psychology classes, teachers and students can follow up with a more detailed look at Dweck's research methods and conclusions.
