Yes, You Can!

Turn negative thinking around by teaching your students to develop a growth mindset. First, explain what a growth mindset is, and then ask small groups to work together to invent original characters and create a comic in which the protagonist goes from having a fixed mindset to one marked by growth. Students can use phrase cards to inspire their comics. Gather and share their colorful projects in print or digitally.

You can find the Mindset Matters bulletin board set for purchase at the Scholastic Teacher Store or at your local teacher store.
