I challenged my students the first week of school. I introduced them to the concept of growth v. fixed mindsets, and I challenged them to attempt the way they think when faced with an obstacle. This challenge can apply to one class or to an extracurricular activity. And, as promised, I will be starting on the poster to remind them of this. I have typed out a rough draft that I modeled after several sources on pinterest.
Stay tuned for the final product, and for student reflections at the end of the year.
