“You learned that so quickly! You’re so smart.”

“If I don’t learn something quickly, I’m not smart. I should avoid doing things that I can’t learn quickly.”

“Look at that drawing. Martha, is he the next Picasso or what?”

“I shouldn’t try to draw anything difficult or they’ll see I am no Picasso.”

“You’re so brilliant! You got an A without even studying!”

“I’d better not study or they won’t think I am brilliant.”

“I’m disappointed in you.”

“You’re lazy.”

“Something is wrong with me. There’s no reason to bother to try. I can’t change. There’s nothing I can do about this situation. I feel bad about myself.”

“Wow- you put a lot more time into this than before and look how it came out!”

“Great job today in class. You were really focused on the work and didn’t let yourself get distracted.”

“I’m impressed by how you tried this over and over until you got it without giving up.”

“You’re stuck on this problem. Can you find a different approach?”

“This essay has a lot of grammatical errors. Who could you ask to proofread it for you?”

    • Don’t protect them from failure!
  • “Yeah, that’s sort of right. Who can build on that?”

“For next time I will use the study tips Mr. Peet gave me when I had a meeting with him. I must use homework assignments as a study guide, use Powerpointsas resources, always focus on details and don’t just read I should take notes and discuss the topic with another person to show how much I know and understood.”

“To do better, I must follow the steps to effective effort. I realized I have been doing 3 things wrong. I haven’t been asking the teacher questions when I am stuck, I have been multitasking a lot and this leads to loss of full focus on studying for the test, and I have been underestimating the time needed to study for the test. I realized that I should ask Mr. Peet a question every single time I am a little confused. I should also split up my time by watching TV and entertaining myself for 2 hours before so I can satiate my entertainment needs so I don’t feel the need to multitask with Facebook and TV and that way I can be fully focused on studying. I have made a plan so that I study for the maximum amount of days, for 1 hour everyday just so the material can sink in and so I have enough time to ask Mr. Peet all necessary questions.”
