Growth Mindset Lesson Plans for High School Students

Hello again friend!

I have been chatting with many of you about what you are focusing on this month, and I know it is all about growth mindsets AND college and career readiness!

Students struggle with the task of maintaining a growth mindset throughout the school year and especially at the beginning of the school year as they are adjusting to life in a new grade / level and creating new relationships.

The student struggles

I know you hear in the hallways…

I can’t.

I don’t know how.

This is too hard.

My students in particular are mostly first-generation college students, so believing that they belong in college and that they can succeed in college is always a topic we chat about.

I try to teach my students to check in with themselves periodically to see how they are doing. This resource I created is PERFECT for them to scale where their progress is AND a perfect starting point for conversations of how to improve.

Growth Mindset Self-Assessment Resource

Therefore, I want to share with you my growth mindset self-assessment worksheets resource I created to help  students self-identify areas of risk / imbalance that can deter them from their college and career goals.

This resource is inexpensive and easy to print for an instant lesson plan or quick assessment for your individual or groups appointments! Check out what is included below!

These growth mindset self-assessment activity worksheets provide the opportunity for awareness your students need to become college and career ready!

This is a great introduction to mindsets that support the academic, personal/social and career domains highlighted by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards for Students. This is great for backing your school counseling program with data, especially those of you at the HS level!

This resource includes:

* 1 Identifying a growth mindset practice sheet
* 1 Identifying a growth mindset practice sheet answer key
* 1 Identifying a growth mindset – create your own examples
* 1 (All areas) Growth mindset self-inventory survey
* 1 Mental & Emotional Inventory Worksheet

Growth mindset is a year-round conversation with students, so if you need additional resources check out my link below, and some of my favorites featured here!
