We are excited to announce that we have created two new group activities designed to help students practice, learn, and reinforce growth mindset concepts in a fun and interactive way: the Mindset Works Hot Potato Game and the Mindset Works Popcorn Game! And best of all, they’re free!
Mindset Works® is excited to announce that we have created another new group activity designed to help students practice, learn, and reinforce growth mindset concepts in a fun and interactive way: the Mindset Works Bingo Game! And best of all, it’s free!
In the “Mindset Works Bingo” game, students review core concepts and ideas straight from the Brainology student curriculum. In groups, pairs or individually, students test their understanding of the growth mindset, how the brain works and learns, and effective study strategies. (Grades 4-12.)
You can find our previous free downloadable games HERE (“Brainology Hot Potato” and “Brainology Popcorn”)
We hope you'll enjoy the brain-games. If you try them, let us know how it went and how your students liked them.
Help Mindset Works test a new growth mindset science game!
We are looking for middle schools who are interested in testing our SciSkill Quest game in their science classrooms in late April/early May of this school year, 2015-16. The game is designed to help students learn inquiry skills and concepts based on the Next Generation Science Standards. The goal of this study is to assess the impact of the game on student motivation and learning in science. If you are interested in participating, please follow this link and complete the form.
"Some schools actually grade students on Growth Mindset and grit. At Lenox, it doesn't make it to report cards, but kids do get evaluated on it, by other kids."
Exciting news for growth mindset schools! Tovia Smith, NPR news correspondent, visited Lenox Academy, a school in Brooklyn teaching Brainology, and talked with students, teachers and administrator Joe Giamportone.
We are so excited to share these new guides with our customers! These guides feature new lessons based on the most recent research about motivating adolescents and helping them develop a growth mindset. Many tasks were revised to align with the Common Core State Standards so that teachers and students can use Brainology classroom time to continue their practice in these important speaking and listening, reading, and writing skills. Finally, each unit in Brainology has specific recommendations for differentiation (based on Carol Ann Tomlinson's work) and scaffolding instructions so that all students can access the material and progress successfully through the program. You'll find the updated curriculum and guides under My Resources.
