Khan Academy is offering a 6 week Growth Mindset Challenge: LearnStorm free to students and teachers!
If you have spent much time with me at all, you know that I am a brain geek. My website is called growbrains.weebly.com, I read articles about how the brain works, and I watch documentaries about the brain. I believe in growth mindset and the challenge is real for us as educators to convince students that intelligence is NOT fixed!
Just read about Khan Academy's free 6 week challenge for students called "LearnStorm". The lessons can easily be linked through Google Classroom or Khan Academy. Students can complete the Weekly lessons on a laptop or on their phone. I just did Lesson 1 and it is clear, concise, and geared for grades 3-12. It's all done and ready for students. Great discussion questions and writing prompts too!
Students can login to Khan Academy using their Google Wake ID. It prompted me through a few questions since I have never logged in. I have only used it as a guest.
LearnStorm may convince your students that brain LOVES a challenge and grows when they miss a question, complete test corrections, or have to work together to solve a problem!
Check out LearnStorm here! (the 6 week challenge runs Sept. 12-Oct. 20 and according to Khan, 450,000 students have already signed up for the challenge)
