The growth mindset believes that their potential intelligence comes from learning, while the fixed mindset thinks they only have a certain amount of intelligence. Along with their differences in learning, these students also have a difference in school priorities. The students with the fixed mindset only cared how smart they would appear and turned down opportunities that were critical to their success. Students with the growth mindset thought about their efforts, and when they work harder it will show in their abilities and accomplishments. I agree with this because everyone will react differently to a setback, especially if they already react differently to education.
The diversity of student backgrounds, abilities and learning styles makes each person unique in the way he or she reacts to information. The intersection of diverse student backgrounds and active learning needs a comfortable, positive environment in which to take root. Dr. King continues by explaining, “Education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed.
However, teachers must approach these geniuses with care and patience. Geniuses are eccentric; they don’t fit in to what we consider the norm of society (para.10). Schools often make the mistake of teaching to the mass instead of focusing on individual students. Unfortunately, “the teaching comes to be arranged for these many, and not for those few” (para.10). Teachers often become “skillfull tutors, of accurate and systematic mind, rather than ardent and inventive masters” (para.10).
On the other hand, author and lecturer Alfie Kohn disputes against a notion of teaching grit in educational programs. He and others make the argument that this idea will have a corrupt repercussion. Considering both sides of the argument, I reach agreement, in my opinion that grit should be taught in schools in today’s world. For the reasons that grit by itself will help students better themselves in and outside of school. (Regardless of the many who lack enthusiasm towards teaching grit), Angela Duckworth and
He uses his emotional appeals well, and could be considered unbiased, based on his discussing both sides of the spectrum with respect to teaching. Rose wants schools to have a better program for children in need, as they are the future, they’ll be the ones in charge when they grow up, and they need to be taught well. At the end of the story, the readers are filled with hope that with this call of action, society as a whole will help these children, instead of pushing them down that economic hole that is hard to get out
According to Bill Gates, “It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” This ideal of learning from failure, instead of fearing it, can encourage students’ success; they will learn that there are consequences for their actions. Unfortunately, educators and parents surmise that it is damaging to acknowledge children’s shortcomings. This is central in, “In Praise of the “F” word” by Mary Sherry and “The Speech the Graduates Didn’t Hear” by Jacob Neusner, which both expound on the effects of recognizing failure. In Sherry’s article, she emphasizes that children are deceived by educators because teachers and parents aren’t holding students accountable for decisions.
I believe that people would stop being influenced to follow the wrong footsteps of other individuals. Because what many people (mainly children) do in this day and age, is subject their minds to be corrupted, by individuals exposing themselves to physically and mentally harsh deeds. Even though maybe not intentional people do proceed to be influenced by these corrupted individuals, to then ruin themselves either physically or mentally. People would be too worried about bettering themselves and reaching their goals, to be
Sometimes people critic based on the actions you make. I think you must carry yourself in a respective way and that way you don’t give any reason for people to talk of you or critic you. I really think it would be a good idea if school systems use the ethics moral from Kant, that way our kids would learn early in life. Kant hard work paid off to help people understand and learn the moral values, people that rad about his moral values could learn many things especially on how to deal in making decisions and how actions have
The practice sheds light on the function of behavior rather than focusing on consequences of breaking rules.the school is testing this strategy to improve students retention in school, test scores, and more importantly instilling the love of learning for diverse learners. It is harder for the school to implement it effectively
The author likens coercion in this sense to young children being forced to attend school, although the parents do, the children are unable to understand the necessity of education. So it is important for children to know the motto and make choice with full liberty. Thus Berlin argues that it is likely to think coercion and liberty one. Anyone might argue that a coerced individual is only acting what he or she had the fully rational and wise
Coats mentions we must “move from the classroom as the locus of instructional delivery, to the student as the focus of instructional attainment.” His opinion, by this, is that focusing on individual students’ needs instead of engaging them in a full classroom is the best solution- using other means than instructional delivery is not only okay but appropriate. Rosenblum opposes this by saying we “internalize an ethos of caution.” He believes that instead of catering to the individual student, forcing them to learn different methods is a better way to go. Their points are strongly made, but contrast dramatically.
In the article "The secret to Raising Smart Kids" I unaware of the complexities that came along with how to raise a child to have a passion for learning. Carol Dweck offers reasoning why students should be taught that success comes from effort, rather than how naturally brilliant or talented they are. Teaching professionals, and also parents should all become aware of the different types of praise can vastly effect a child 's mind set. Student should be welcoming towards a challenge rather than call it quits. This process of teaching students to rely more effort, and have more of a growth mind-set should become part of the teaching program, this could dramatically create a difference in the behavior of students struggle in school.
Confidence is essential to living a happy, successful life. It is extremely hard to find any motivation or work hard at something if you have low self-esteem. However, there is a fine line between self confidence and arrogance or ignorance. While confidence is a great motivator, too much of it tends to end in more negative rather than positive consequences. In “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer and “Last American Man” by Elizabeth Gilbert, Chris McCandless and Eustace Conway share a passion for the wilderness.
