PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Develop reading skills (CCSS-aligned), get your students discussing passionately and improve their capacity for learning - what's not to love? A perfect resource to develop your students' thinking skills any time but particularly good for early in the year.

OVERVIEW
This lesson starts with an anticipation guide, in which students reflect on their own beliefs about intelligence and learning.

Following this, students read an original 2-page article on how the brain develops. It includes:
* Information on intelligence as something to be developed, rather than fixed
* The role of mindset in learning
* The power of ‘yet’
They have a double-sided sheet to complete as they explore the text which practices: citing evidence; finding the main idea; recognising cause & effect; identifying the importance of a section as part of a whole; and synthesis.

While these are Common Core aligned skills, they are useful for any student’s reading skills.

Discussion cards have been provided as a follow up to the reading, so students can develop their ideas.

Finally, students are asked to reflect on how this learning might impact their attitude and actions, setting specific goals to improve their learning.

(A FREE optional resource comparing the brains of zombies and humans (Zombie Brains versus Human Brains) can be downloaded from my store, for those using this resource with my other zombie-themed lessons.)

BONUS MATERIAL ADDED August 2016: The resource now includes an 'I Have Who Has?' activity to review key vocabulary in the article. This can be used in subsequent lessons to help students remember definitions. This bundle will grow over time, so grab it now before the price increases with each addition!

My students absolutely love finding out the science behind how they learn, and this lesson has them passionately discussing their views on intelligence. It has surprised me how well it is received by all secondary grades,and it doesn't matter what subject or age I'm teaching, it's always a winner. The reading level is around 7th grade (more due to sentence structure than vocabulary), but accessible and engaging to all students from Grades 6-12.
