The best part? I have taken care of all of the planning and prep for you! This classroom counseling lesson is aligned with ASCA and CASEL standards, and it includes a detailed counselor script, outline, suggested answers, and extension activities.

Benefiting Students

How often do you hear "I am just not good at X" or "it's not fair that Y is so good at Z"? These are the types of statements that come from having a fixed mindset. Fostering a growth mindset in students will help them see challenges as a chance to grow and learn. Furthermore, students will be empowered to improve rather than just wishing things were different.

Saving Time
This lesson is designed to be very low-prep and ready to use as is without any editing.

Who is This Lesson Designed For?
This Growth Mindset Classroom Counseling Lesson is designed for students in grades 1-6.
