Winston Churchill states, “continuous effort-not strength or intelligence-is key to unlocking our potential”. In other words, Churchill believes that hard work is the foundation of success. Success is achieved through effort, making mistakes, choosing to learn from them, and continuing forward. Many individuals, however, have preconceived notions of intelligence and presume it is innate and fixed. On the other hand, Carol Dweck has proven these preconceived opinions to be untrue.
To begin with, it is extremely important that our educational system stops promoting false confidence and allowing students to unlearn their current outlook on life. Both Davidson and Twenge touch upon the flaws in the current education system. As Davidson describes, “Confidence in your ability to learn is confidence in your ability to unlearn, to switch assumptions or methods or partnerships in order to do better. This is true not only for you, as an individual, but for whole institutions” (Davidson 67). Davidson believes true confidence, allows one to not only learn important ideas, but also forsake the ideas that may harm him or her from reaching a goal; she also mentions that this notion does not apply just to an individual person, but also applies
Although Maslow was considered to be the Father of humanistic psychology making him very important. Carl Jung was probably one of the most important people in Psychology, he used to work with Sigmund Freud in the early days. He made a lot of contributions to all four of paradigms in psychology. Rollo May was one of the co-founders of Humanistic Psychology, he believed that human nature can be best understood by focusing on someone’s personal experiences. Carl Rogers was another co-founder of Humanistic Psychology, he began to work in child guidance after recovering his PH.D.
Introduction “Learning is not development; however, properly organized learning results in mental development and sets in motion a variety of developmental processes that would be impossible part from learning. Thus, learning is a necessary and universal aspect of the process of developing culturally organized, specifically human, psychological functions” (Vygotsky, 1978, p. 90). The Russian psychologist of the early twentieth century, Lev Vygotsky, laid down the foundation for an entire school of thought to later be known as the socio-cultural perspective on human development. Vygotsky differentiated himself from other psychologists of the time by placing an emphasis on societies influence on development and the processes by which development
Summary: The general argument made by Ken Robinson is that public education has become a way to produce college professors instead of students growing up to prosper in what they enjoy doing. More specifically, Ken Robinson is that education itself is though in a way to prepare students for the future, when no one knows on what the future will look like in years to come. Students are all for innovation and in public school with our different talents education seems to squander them. Ken Robinson specifically states that “Children have a go and they are not frightened to be wrong, but public education makes them belief so”. This idea creates children to not belief that they should prosper in any other field but the ones being taught in high

Until Piaget most people just assumed children were less intelligent versions of adults, but through his research Piaget showed that think very differently from adults. Understanding these differences was Piaget’s end goal. To fully understand Piaget’s model one must understand that Piaget interpreted children’s actions as their language, their way of understanding and explaining the world around them. Piaget thought that children actively construct their reality using the environment around them, in other words they learn by doing. Another thing to keep in mind is that Piaget’s model is marked by qualitative differences rather in developmental behavior.
Acculturation could be understood as the process of cultural and psychological change that results following interaction between cultures. This effect of this interaction happens on the group and individual level. According to Berry (2005), “At the group level, it involves changes in social structures and institutions and in cultural practices. At the individual level, it involves changes in a person’s behavioral repertoire” (p. 698-699). The cultural and psychological result of acculturation is a long-term process, and requires some level of adaptation between the cultured groups.
This idea sheds light on one of the many frustrations teachers generally express when teaching students of color. In addition to performances of resistance, the idea of Dominant Academic English (DAE) also deepens how disconnected students on the margins feel regarding school. DAE focuses on issues with grammar and
((As such, it evokes the work of educator John Dewey and psychologist Carl Rogers.)) In uniquely not reiterating the 12-step approach, it can appeal to those having problems following a rote program that does not fully speak to them. After all, the 12-step approach doesn’t work for everyone. Developing problem-solving and interpersonal skills is a core component of the therapy. Often, this is introduced early on, in order to initially get past the denial of any substance abuse problem.
