Here is an overview of the chapter. You can click on the picture to download the PDF for easy reference.
Chapter 8 in the book Mindsets in the Classroom gives practical ways to integrate the development of a growth mindset in your classroom. But, with all of the demands and commitments of a normal school day, where can we find time? Well, be creative! Mary Cay recommends integrating your growth mindset lessons into your day. Are you working on non-fiction comprehension? Why not read about neuroscience (which would obviously have to be modified for the elementary classroom)! Are you starting the year with a science unit on famous scientists? Add a mini unit on neuroscience. I bet those scientists had a growth mindset.
Ricci walks you through the entire process. She has it all planned out for you, from pre-assessment to sample learning tasks, to introducing students to growth mindset terminology. I have chosen three of my favorite things from the chapter, and have combined them into a big, chapter 8 freebie. Who doesn't love a freebie?
I have included the pre-assessment worksheet, one of the learning tasks, and made printable posters of eight quotes that Ricci included at the end of the chapter. Here are a few of my favorites.
