Take a few minutes to think of a time when you overcame a struggle to learn something. Reflect on the times when you failed at first but through persevering your brain created new neural connections and you eventually became better at the task at hand. Imagine there is a student in PSY 2012 who is becoming discouraged in their struggle and beginning to think of themselves as not smart enough to do well in school. In a well-developed letter (3-5 paragraphs) to this struggling student in PSY 2012 General Psychology, tell this student your story and give them advice (based on the evidence provided in the articles and video). Feel free to be as creative as you would like, but make sure to include the following:
1) Based on the articles you read and the video you watched about the growth mindset provided to you in this section, what are the reasons scientists say that abilities and talents can grow and get better with effort and practice? Clearly explain the concept of the fixed and growth mindset. Cite which article or video you are citing as your evidence.
2) Share your own experience!
3) Provide advice (based on what you learned about growth mindset from the resources provided here) about how to be successful even when they encounter obstacles in this blended/accelerated course and in other areas of their lives.
