Big thought for today:
Once upon a time, there was a teacher who believed in the power of growth mindset and long term thinking. They wanted to impart these important lessons to their students, but they made a mistake in the way that they approached it. They tried to teach these concepts, but the students struggled to grasp the abstract nature of these ideas. They found it difficult to think about their future goals and how to work towards them in a long term, incremental way. The teacher noticed that their students were struggling and began to feel frustrated and discouraged.
However, the teacher didn’t give up. They realized that they had made a mistake in their approach and decided to try something different. They began to focus on goals that were more near term and achievable in the short term. They set bite-sized goals for their students and made sure to break them down into smaller, manageable tasks.
In addition to setting these goals, the teacher also emphasized the importance of reflection. They encouraged their students to take time to think about their progress and what they had learned. This helped the students to see the value in setting and working towards goals, even if they were small ones.
Through this new approach, the teacher was able to successfully teach their students about the power of growth mindset and long term thinking. They learned that it was important to be patient and to break things down into smaller, more manageable chunks. And most importantly, they learned the value of reflection and the importance of taking the time to think about their progress and what they had learned.
