I want to share a growth mindset quiz foldable I created to use with my students at the beginning of the year.
This past school year, we focused on growth mindset for Day 2. We talked through SBG and how we learn math.
I introduced my controversial A/B/Not Yet grading scale. Any assignment or test that is not A or B quality must be redone until it is A or B quality.
We also talked about the way our words affect our mindset.
At the end of Day 1, I had had students fill out a tweet strip describing what they believed intelligence to be.
Next was my favorite activity: a growth mindset quiz. I stole heavily from several other quizzes I found online. And, I combined several of these sources into a booklet foldable for students to glue in their interactive notebooks.
On the outside was a quiz that asked students to SA – Strongly Agree, A – Agree, D – Disagree, or SD – Strongly Disagree with each statement.
Inside the foldable, students found a scoring key.
Students added up their total scores and determined their current mindset from the score.
To emphasize that this is only their CURRENT mindset, I had them list three things they thought they could do to change their mindset.
I also included a fixed mindset/growth mindset graphic I stole from the internet.
I had my student aide pre-crease all of the foldables so students couldn’t see the scoring information inside.
