Eric Jensen has participants of his workshops (Teaching and Engaging with Poverty in Mind) rewrite the narrative of their personal stories with a positive, Growth Mindset frame. I've adapted his idea for students. Teachers at my school (100% free and reduced lunch) are having their Advisory students work through their Own Better Stories for student-led conference portfolios.
The template provides the framework to think about setting personal goals, the sentence stems for each goal, and the area in which students weave their work into a paragraph.
I've provided the original word doc so that you can adapt my examples for your grade level.
