November Mindset Reflection

My website is functioning and I’m usually remembering to update the assignments everyday.  Some parents have mentioned checking the website if their student forgot his/her assignment notebook at school.

Now the next part for me is to add links to my newsletters and articles that might be helpful to parents and students.  By the end of the year, I’m hoping to post student work!  

The article from Khan on “growth mindset” reminds me that my brain is growing as I struggle with technology.  He writes “Neural connections form and deepen most when we make mistakes doing difficult tasks rather than repeatedly having success with easy ones.”  When I remember that, I’m ready for another session of “Inspired Writing.”

  1. Sue,

    You are spot on in recognizing how much you are growing through struggle. It sounds like you have taken some huge, helpful steps forward - steps that impact you, your students, and their families. Your website slowly becomes your best friend. I link things during class for my students sometimes when we realize we need easier access to something. You are amazing :)
