Growth Mindset - The power of yet.

The incredible power of yet – asking for help is a really good thing. Video and discussion questions: https://ideas.classdojo.com/f/growth-mindset-3 What should you do if you are stuck on a project, math problem, or worksheet question? Think of a time you were afraid to ask for help. Why did you feel afraid? Why is the word ”yet” so powerful? Think of something you don't know how to do ”yet” and discuss it with your neighbour! Discuss ‘being in the pit’ – Remember that you do your best learning when you are stuck. If you are not entering the pit, you aren’t learning. Being in the pit is a good place to be – the challenge then is to find your way out of it. As a pairs/threes, discuss and :addresponse: : 1. Name a time you were afraid to ask for help. Why were you afraid? 2. How can you improve the phrase "I can't do this?” 3. Think of a time where you just didn't get “it.” What could you do in that situation?

Session 3 – The power of yet The incredible power of yet – asking for help is a really good thing. Video and discussion questions: https://ideas.classdojo.com/f/growth-mindset-3 What should you do if you are stuck on a project, math problem, or worksheet question? Think of a time you were afraid to ask for help. Why did you feel afraid? Why is the word ”yet” so powerful? Think of something you don't know how to do ”yet” and discuss it with your neighbour! Activity idea: The learning pit – Talk through with the class ‘being in the pit’ – Explain that you do your best learning when you are stuck. If you are not entering the pit, you aren’t learning. Being in the pit is a good place to be – the challenge then is to find your way out of it. Have a laminated copy of this on display to refer to in class. Use the questions below to guide a discussion. Feel free to ask the children to respond in groups using Seesaw, but this is optional. 1. Name a time you were afraid to ask for help. Why were you afraid? (Both teachers and student should pick a moment to share) 2. How can you improve the phrase "I can't do this?” 3. Think of a time where you just didn't get “it.” What could you do in that situation?
