AVID IDEAS

Having a growth mindset is an important quality! There are a variety of things that we may find challenging, but when scholars view mistakes or challenges as opportunities to grow, they are exercising their brains. One way to practice having a growth mindset is to replace phrases like “I can’t”, “it’s too hard”, “I’m not good at this”, etc. and focus on including the word “yet”. Instead of saying, “I’m not good at this”, encourage your scholar to say “I’m not good at this skill yet” or “I will keep practicing this skill”.

Ideas de AVID

Teniendo una mentalidad de crecimiento es una calidad importante! Hay una variedad de cosas que nos parecen difíciles, pero cuando los escolares miran los errores y retos como oportunidades de crecer, están ejercitando sus cerebros. Una manera de practicar la mentalidad de crecimiento es de reemplazar frases como "No puedo", "Es muy difícil", "No estoy bueno con esto", etc y enfocar en incluir la palabra "todavía". En ves de decir, “No estoy bueno con esto”, anima a su escola a decir “No estoy bueno con esta habilidad todavia” o “Voy a continuar practicando esta habilidad”.
