As a recap, once or twice a month I would offer a “Mindset Moment” video to my students on a Friday as their warm up. After watching the video, all I would ask every time is, “What did you think is the message in this Mindset Moment video? What is your one big takeaway?” I was always very impressed with the reflection that my students gave. Sometimes they saw what I had intended, and sometimes they saw a different, but equally important, message. I don’t remember the order that I showed them in, and in the last week of school I ended up showing a bunch because…well…it was the end of school and grades were already posted and we were just there because of snow days.
Disclaimer: Some of these are admittedly more meaningful than others (and some aren’t really “mindset” per se but just inspirational). Some of them are actually commercials and I would stop or start the videos at certain points, or tell them that I do not in any way endorse this product. Some (one) of them has a swear in the title so I had to work some magic to get the title not to show.

Do you have any others you also show? After listing these again I’ve realized that a good chunk really aren’t mindset videos but they have a message nonetheless.
Merci pour l’inspiration de ce sujet!
