    Hi Everyone:

    I just want to thank you for participating. I have a lot of great take-ways from this conversation.  Have a wonderful school year.

  • Chapter 11 summarizes several things we learned from this book.  What is one take-home message or lesson that you will carry into the new school year?

  • "Engagement is student connection to a learning experience evidenced by wholehearted participation." (pg. 127) Do you have a lesson that reaches your students in this way?  Please share.

  • I am struggling with a specific question for this chapter.  Did you have any questions or comments that you would like to share about sympathy vs. empathy?

  • What are some positive behavior management techniques you've used with your classes?

  • How do YOU rise above your failures?  How do you help your students or those around you to see failure as a natural part of learning?

  • This chapter provides strategies for getting students to think about the process rather than the end point.  Have you used any of these techniques in the past or is there one you would like to try in the future?

    In this chapter, Brock and Hundley state, "Teaching the science behind mindset is a non-negotiable part of developing a growth-oriented classroom."  Do you agree?  How can we do that in our libraries, schools or other settings?
