Growth Mindset Posters for Classroom Teachers
Teachers, here’s a way to counteract negative self-talk in the classroom: promote positive thinking! I use growth mindset posters in my own classroom to boost my student’s confidence and willingness to engage in new tasks. When a student starts using a fixed mindset, I point out to him or her that it will be difficult to overcome their educational hurdles if they shut their mind off to new ideas and ways of thinking.
During a lesson, I say we want use positive self-talk, that we want to turn on the lightbulb that makes our brain grow. And, we want to shut off the negative self-talk that builds a wall inside. You can prompt your students by stating, “Does that comment turn the lightbulb on or build a wall?” You can also use the large glitter brain poster to further reinforce this. I tell my younger students that their brain will grow into a beautiful rainbow if they use positive self-talk.
When a student says, “This is too hard!” tell them to ask themselves, “What am I missing?” As a result, and over time, your students will start to understand that they have to re-think all the steps of the problem to figure out which one they’re missing.
