Disclaimer: I received a book to review. All opinions are my own,
I homeschool my children, but I have long been studying education and teaching methods. I have always been interested in different teaching theories and in what teachers can do to really help their students. I remember in college being amazed at the difference in teachers and how their students react to them and the lessons. I pay even more attention now because I am teaching my own children, and this is the most important thing I have ever done and ever will do. I love finding new ways to teach them. For me, teaching them to love learning, work hard, and be compassionate are at the top of the list.
When I was offered a copy of The Growth Mindset Coach: A Teacher's Month-by-Month Handbook for Empowering Students to Achieve, by Annie Brock, I knew I had to read it. I have slowly started implementing some of their tactics. As they get older, I will be implementing more and more of these tactics, but right now, they are 3-years-old and kindergarten.
