Failing Forward

10 Celebrities Who Failed

Our Growth Mindset work today focused on failing to succeed!  Students were inspired by the video below to see celebrities that dealt with failures in their life but overcame those challenges to achieve success that they are known for today!  This gave students excitement to interview someone special to them about failures they have experienced, and how they moved forward! 

Growth Mindset Work September 22, 2016

Students worked in pairs to better understand the difference between having a fixed mindset, and having a growth mindset.  They explored fixed mindset statements and then came up with growth mindset statements to replace that fixed thinking with! What an awesome session to build a classroom of persistent, flexible and resilient learners!
