Growing a Healthy Classroom Mindset is designed to cover at least 20 days of instruction. Teachers introduce the basic knowledge concerning mindsets and brain research. They then present a growth mindset statement each day. Discuss the statement and what it means. As each statement is covered, add the accompanying poster to a bulletin board to create an inspiring display that can be referred to throughout the year. $
The bulletin board behind the desk is called "Change Your Words - Change Your Mindset!" This year, I'm working to help my kids develop a growth mindset. Many of them have had a fixed mindset instilled in them through their families. They have been raised to believe that they are either a "math person" or "not a math person." This summer, I read Carol Dweck's Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.
