This book will give you the tools for encouraging students to achieve greater social, emotional and academic success by improving their positive growth mindset and applying its concepts and skills daily. “P.E.P.” is an acronym for Positive Thinking, Effort & Perseverance, three essential elements of a positive growth mindset and provides the fun and creativity of the PEP Chant and various PEP slogans (P.E.P. Power!, P.E.P. Check, P.E.P Talk…) to set the tone for learning, to redirect, to remind, and to encourage students to be using the skills of the Growth Mindset.
The included lessons, activities, and skills can be used with individuals, small groups or classrooms and/or in a P.E.P. Rally for your entire school. Components can also be included in morning announcements, in hall and classroom displays, and as handouts for teachers and parents. Includes a CD of reproducibles.
