Class Experience

Students will be introduced to the growth mindset, identify it in themselves, practice it and connect it to their own lives and experiences.
I have 6 years of experience as a classroom special education teacher, 20 years of experience as a tutor, and 5 years of experience as a homeschool mom.  In all 3 settings, I realized the best thing for a student was to develop a mindset where they believe in themself and can feel successful.  I discovered this journal & "growth mindset" as a homeschooler and have used it with my own children but the experience of having friends as their "journal buddy" has brought it to another level.
Students will have a podcast to listen to before each class (optional).  Students will be encouraged to come to class each week with something to share about how they used or didn't use the growth mindset throughout the week.
Students will need their own hardcopy of the "Big Life Journal, 2nd edition" ( Students should come to class with their journal and something to write & draw with.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is developed around the "Big Life Journal, 2nd edition" and the chapters/recommendations included.
