GROWTH MINDSETS- LESSON 2-
REVIEWING THE FOUNDATION OF GROWTH MINDSET
PART 1- (5 MINUTES)
- Teaching students a growth mindset can help increase their motivation to learn, as well as lead to higher engagement and performance (Good, Aronson, & Inzlicht, 2003; Blackwell, Trzesniewski & Dweck, 2007; Aronson, Fried & Good, 2002).
By the end of this lesson, learners should:
- identify and understand two ways of thinking about intelligence
- commit to an activity that will grow their neurons
- explain how they can get their brain to develop
PART 2- watch clip- (5 MINUTES)
It all starts with the science of neuroplasticity. Watch this video.
PART 3- watch, record, discuss- (10-15 MINUTES)
PART 4- watch, respond and share- (20 MINUTES)
When students are finished responding in their workbook, they are to move into pairs or groups of three to share their responses. As students listen they should make at least one point (on a post-it note, or similar) about something new that they learned from someone else. This is then submitted to the teacher at the end of the lesson. Teachers may choose to invite three or four students to share their responses with the whole class.
