Lately, as I work on keeping a growth mindset, I’ve been wondering how fine the line is between persevering and being foolishly stubborn.
As I was preparing for our Parent/Teacher meeting tonight during which we will be discussing Mindset, by Carol Dweck, I came across a video clip on Larry Ferlazzo’s blog that reminded me that the line may be a fine one – but it’s usually much further away then I imagine.
I’m not a huge football fan, and I’m not particularly fond of people yelling at me as a method of encouragement. But this scene made me wish I could have a coach that would push me past my imagined limits with as much love and determination as the man in Facing Giants.
It also made me wish I had a script writer who could help me create inspiring dialogue for my classroom 😉
