Feel Like You’re Going Out of Your Mind? Consider Your Mind-Set – The New York Times:

“High school teachers in cities around Texas, including Houston, El Paso and Fort Worth, who had studied in a growth mind-set program, said students with more of that mind-set were able to adapt faster to online learning. And the teachers themselves are using what they learned to guide students; as one teacher said in an Education Week article, he tried to make sure his students were comfortable enough to discuss their struggles ‘That’s the big thing from growth mind-set. What do you do when you have that struggle? I try to push onto them, ‘you use it as a learning opportunity. You ask questions, you can’t just give up.’’”

Compressed Learning

Pick up to six topics or areas of interest. Each day there will be some learning and engagement with the areas you have chosen. You can even plan in an exercise period if you like.

You will be amazed at how much you can learn in these short bursts of time. Focus and interest make a huge impact on totality of what you learn.
