The Power of Yet – Unleashing Potential

The power of yet is a concept surrounding the idea of a growth mindset. It revolves around the word ‘yet’ and adding this to statements about challenges or skills a child hasn’t mastered… yet! This shifts the perspective from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

This set of posters is a great visual to display in your classroom when challenging your students to have a growth mindset over a fixed mindset. Here are the sayings included on the posters:

  • Instead of saying ‘I can’t do it’, try saying ‘I can’t do it YET!’
  • Instead of saying, ‘I don’t get it,’ try saying, ‘I don’t get it YET!’
  • Instead of saying, ‘I’m not good at it,’ try saying, ‘I’m not good at it YET!’
  • Instead of saying, ‘It doesn’t work,’ try saying, ‘It doesn’t work YET!’
  • Instead of saying, ‘It’s too hard,’ try saying, ‘I will keep practicing!’
  • Instead of saying, ‘I give up,’ try saying, ‘I will keep trying!’
  • Believe in the power of YET.
  • I can’t do that YET.
  • This does not work YET.
  • There is a difference between not knowing and not knowing YET
  • Everything that you don’t know is something you can LEARN

Why Teach Growth Mindset in the Classroom?

When talking with students about strengths and weaknesses, it’s a natural progression to cover the importance of having a growth mindset. Combining these concepts enhances students’ understanding of their abilities and limitations in a holistic way. Here are just a few reasons why it is beneficial:

  • Students avoid developing an overly fixed or negative perception. They recognize their strengths, understand their weaknesses, and how they can be improved with effort and the right strategies.
  • When discussing weaknesses, introducing a growth mindset helps students view them as opportunities for growth rather than limitations.
  • It helps to inform goal setting in the classroom.
  • Fosters a transition from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
  • Prepare students for real-world challenges.
