Teacher Comments

I just finished reading your discussion posts for the month of June.  Your insights and connections to the book were excellent and I always enjoy reading your personal stories of struggles and triumph whether it be in sports, academics or the arts.

A couple of things for the July postings...
- Only respond to one discussion post from another student.  You do not need to respond twice, but are welcome to do so if you like what another student has written and can relate to it.

- Before each discussion post identify what chapter you are responding to in your answer.  For example:  Chapter Three -....

- Don't forget to reference a quote from the book when writing your answer.  You will lose points if you don't include a quote and page number from the chapter.

That's it.  I look forward to reading your July postings.  Enjoy the last few weeks of the summer.

Chapter Three, Chapter Four and Chapter Six

Respond to each question.  Then, respond to one student's post from either chapter.  Remember you only have to read chapter three and either chapter four or chapter six.

Chapter Three
Did you always assume that success came right from innate talent or ability?  Think of someone who wasn't labeled brilliant or talented, but are highly successful.  How did they do it?

Chapter Four
Do you have the mindset of a champion?  Do you do your best when things are going for you or against you?  How can you use a growth mindset to raise your game when it counts most?

Chapter Six
Have you closed yourself off to certain relationships because you expect perfection - total alignment in every way?  Think about the people you know who would be wonderful additions to your life in spite of their imperfections?
