Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right.
I worked hard to get them to understand that the beliefs that they hold about themselves can greatly affect the rate of progress that they make in the unit. It was imperative to me that they have a realistic perspective on things and to know that despite mistakes and failure, switching their mindsets into the correct gear was pivotal in helping them better persevere through this difficulty. Together we celebrated even the smallest of successes which I hope helped in creating more of an 'I think I can' attitude in this unit. As educators, we must ensure that we design opportunities to address mindset with our students. To me, it's so worth it to generate powerful discussions about mindset on an ongoing basis in PE.
