GROWTH MINDSET ARTICLE FROM BRIDGING THE GAP

I use this as a reading activity for Yr 11 into 12 to help them develop speed reading and also make notes using the Cornell Method. Feel free to use as Bridging Work for Yr 11 to help them understand the growth mindset in more depth. I have included examples from the original book by Dweck to give it more interest. Use Bridging the Gap for derails on speed reading, making notes, organisation, self-esteem, 'comparison shopping' and more on emotional learning exercises.
