The point of this article is basically being there for them, teach them how to be independence, have someone to be in their life that we care about them. When the kids have trouble of reading, spelling, studying, we tutorial them and give them practice skills to work on their weakness to work on. We teach them how to control their emotions. When you have a friendly relationship is to always let them know that you care about them and show them develop trust to them, have that special bond with them. It is important to teach students about the classroom rules, schools rules, daily routines, learn to practice new skills in the classroom and out of the classroom, and now their school schedule and outside of school schedule.
Even as a kindergartener my teacher told my parents that she is amazed by the effort I put into something when I do not understand the lesson. So I would say I have a growth mind-set. This is greatly influenced by my parents and always being praised for the effort I put into my work, inside and outside of school. I did have a teacher that rewarded students for their grades and not effort. I can still remember feeling so ashamed when I did poorly on a reading assessment.
In “The Lesson” and in “Commencement Speech, Kenyon College.”, the teacher 's attempt to open up the kids’ minds to the “rat race” that many people find themselves in and only want to help the children for their future. Although people question teaching methods and want to only have their own ideals put into their child’s mind, there are things that every person should be aware of and teachers are the people who can be sure that every child is aware of the world around them in order to live a better
The article stated, “people who are not as bright as their peers “compensate by working harder with more determination’” (p.46). This relates to my experience because since I felt slower I had to work harder and study longer. As a result, I even received better grades than most of peers. Growth mindset is defined in the article, “Mindset” by Carol Dweck.
In the article “ Brainology: Transforming Students’ Motivation to Learn” by, Carol S. Dweck, she differentiates the two different kinds of mindsets that students have when learning. Those mindsets are fixed and growth. A student with a fixed mindset has the mentality that every student has a substantial amount of intelligence. However, a student with a growth mindset realizes their intelligence is through learning. Students with a fixed mindset tend to give up once they make a mistake, but students with growth mindsets learn from their mistakes.
In the article, “Brainology: Transforming Students Motivation to Learn” by Carol S. Dweck, she explains the different mindsets, which are, fixed and growth. According to Dweck, a student with a fixed mindset believes that they can only learn so much. A student with a growth mindset believes that intelligence is achieved through determination and hardwork. The way parents are praising their children is really affecting their confidence in academics.
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.
There are two basic mindsets that extremely affect students’ learning. Carol Dweck in her article “ Brainology” shows us the harmful effects of having a “fixed mindset” and the benefits of having a “ growth mindset”. She states that the fixed mindset is the most common and the most harmful because it believes trouble is devastating. People in this mindset believe they either are or are not good at something is based on their inherent nature because it is just who they are. They assume success is created from inherent talent and intelligence.
This means that there are smart people who aren’t high achievers. There are also some people who are high achievers, without having the highest test scores. Growth mindset is when you see failure and setbacks as an indication that you should continue developing your skills rather
Growth mindset is quite the hypocritical idea, it encourages this willingness to put yourself out there and make mistakes, in a system that is structured to punish mistakes. Schools have been based on your marks for many years, your grades are, your ability to succeed are, and even your ability to get awarded for extra curriculars are. That is how it has been for many years, and although lessons in growth mindsets are a great step forward we are not adapting the rest of the system to match. As we say to think outside of the box and risk your learning we are also rolling out more and more standardized tests. Those tests encourage the exact opposite of our main goal which is to allow students a welcoming and safe learning environment.
If children had this mindset put in towards their education, it wouldn’t only carry through school work. But in the long run, it aids that person to persist personal goals and it develops great character allowing that person to grow every
Education and creativity is one of my big factors of growth. Its very important to me to have an education because that’s how you have knowledge, without knowledge no one can have an education to give a point of view in life. ”Without growth and self success, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. This quote explains, that education affect lives, whether it’s physically or mentally. The goals in my 8th grade year are graduating the year with high honor roll, making my family/peers proud, and setting a good example to others.
