Daily SEL Lesson – Growth Mindset 4/14

Daily SEL Lesson – Growth Mindset 4/14

Welcome to the CLS Daily SEL lesson. Each day, Monday through Friday, we will provide a new social-emotional learning lesson designed to build emotional intelligence and resilience. There will be a lesson for elementary students and a lesson for secondary students that include media (videos, audios, or text) and simple step-by-step instructions.

We hope that the lessons are helpful to you and your children.

Weekly Focus: Growth Mindset

Elementary Lesson – You Can Learn Anything

Media: Video – 


  • Watch the video.
  • Draw a timeline of the things you may learn over your lifetime.
  • Complete the sentence “I really want to learn:_______.”

Secondary Lesson – Carol Dweck Video

Media: Video –


  • Watch the video and take a few notes.
  • What specific things have you told yourself that you could not do? Rephrase your thinking and list 4 new statements ending with “yet.”
  • Examples: I cannot do math, yet. I am just not a person who can ride a bike, yet.
  • Make small signs with each Power of Yet statement and put them around your room.

Join us tomorrow for another lesson about developing a growth mindset.
