You Are Awesome Learning Resources – a downloadable pack of classroom materials for KS2 and KS3, based on the book
The You Are Awesome resources for schools comprises a series of eight lessons, written as a direct interpretation of Matthew Syed’s new book, You Are Awesome: Find Your Confidence and Dare to be Brilliant at (Almost) Anything.
The sessions have been designed to support pupils either side of the KS2-KS3 transition in their development of Growth Mindset. With two parallel courses adapted for students in Years 5/6 and Years 7/8, teachers gain full access to:
a) One Teacher Manual
b) Eight sessions – one per chapter, which include: lesson plans, PowerPoints, worksheets, reflective clips from Matthew Syed
c) Two assemblies (one to introduce the course; one to conclude the course)
d) Pre and post self-assessments
To use the resources, pupils will need to read You Are Awesome (either in class or at home). Through the sessions, they will be exposed to the importance of learning from their failures, shown how success is entirely dependent on hard work and persistent determination, and challenged to employ resilience in the face of obstacles on their educational journey
The You Are Awesome resources for schools will be available to purchase as a one-time-only online download.
