This resource is intended for high school students, though it could be adapted to work at almost any grade level. It covers the parts of the brain related to learning and addresses the idea of a growth- vs. a fixed-mindset, helping students discover and harness the fact that they can actually change their brain and become more successful learners. This lesson plan includes a variety of resources, including the Dweck article, “You Can Grow Your Intelligence” and a trio of video clips, but not all the suggested activities are included. For instance, when the overview references “the 6 sessions and purpose,” it is not immediately clear to the teacher what those six sessions are, or how the purpose should be defined. Materials such as “powerpoint slides” and “questions for students to answer” are referenced but not provided. The final assessment (homework) is creative, asking students to listen for related statements in everyday context. Overall, this lesson needs to include more of its parts in order to be immediately useful in the classroom. This resource is part of a larger collection of resources: at http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_Group_Testgroup/yeagertest
This lesson plan is a two-day workshop to introduce fundamental concepts about the human brain and to teach the basic ideas behind the growth mindset, and how it can help you to have success in school.
