This TED Talk is our theme talk for this class. You will be facing many challenges that have caused students before you to simply quit. The trick is knowing how to make yourself feel powerful and capable, even when you are facing a new problem. How will you work problems if you can't walk away? Use what you know about your biology and the content, take on new pieces, shed what doesn't work, fake it, and be ready to embrace failure as an opportunity to learn. If you can't do something, remember that you just can't do it YET. Find what works for you. Nelson Mandela said "I never fail. I either win or I learn." Be one who wins or learns at all times. See everything as something that is possible. Then you will succeed--in this class and beyond.
TOP 5 TIPS FOR STUDENT SUCCESS:
Work for your mastery not for your grade.
Embrace failures as opportunities to learn. Believe in the power of YET!
Care about others, whether you know them or not.
Make sure you are in a tribe that cares about each other's successes.
Speak. Write. Communicate. Make us hear you.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THIS WILL BE YOU IN MAY!
