Growth Mindset Lesson Plan - by Khan Academy and PERTS

This lesson plan offers several fun activities that can teach youth that intelligence can be developed and that their minds are malleable. Great for mentors, teachers, and others working with youth in groups or even one-on-one.

Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems.
