Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

Engage your students in critical thinking by delving into the narrative nuances of Ashley Spires’ “The Most Magnificent Thing.” If a physical copy isn’t available, a read-aloud video suffices. Following the reading, initiate a discussion centered around the following inquiries:

Reflections on Setbacks:

  • How did the protagonist respond upon realizing her creation wasn’t as magnificent as envisioned?
  • What insights did this experience offer regarding her mindset?

Epiphanies in Perseverance:

  • What pivotal realization occurred during the protagonist’s walk?
  • How did this insight contribute to her journey towards creating something truly magnificent?

Unveiling the Path to Success:

  • Analyze the steps taken by the protagonist in crafting her magnificent creation.
  • Identify the factors that propelled her towards achieving success, considering both internal and external influences.

Encourage students to dissect the narrative’s layers, fostering a deeper understanding of growth mindset principles and their profound impact on individual progress and achievement. Through thoughtful exploration, students can glean valuable lessons applicable to their own academic and personal endeavors.
