School Licensures School by State. What I have learned. By Belinda Luscombe Kids who struggle with reading get an early lesson in one of life’s more sucky realities; the earlier a person falls behind, the harder it is to even want to catch up. Their classmates move on to more interesting books, write stories that get noticed and get rewarded for finishing their work fast. Meanwhile the slower readers can barely make sense of the activity sheet in front of them. When a child can’t read, school becomes either a huge, grinding drag or a very efficient confidence-removal machine.

Usually both. Reading is not a natural ability. Kids are resourceful and, if they find themselves in a jam, they will get out of it, sometimes by working harder, but usually by hiding, or distracting others from their vulnerabilities. However, not being able to read isn’t what it used to be. One of the first things you should think about doing is getting your kid a tablet.

And if so, why? A lot of people say that they are bad at math and blame a lack of talent. This belief that we are born being good at certain things and bad at other things is called a fixed mindset. If you ascribe to this idea, then you see intelligence and ability as static. The opposite viewpoint, and one that researchers increasingly think is crucial to success, is the growth mindset. The trouble with a fixed mindset Children who have a fixed mindset view school as a place where they have to prove their intelligence over and over again. In a study, Dweck and her colleagues gave 4-year-olds the choice of redoing an easy puzzle or trying a more difficult one. A fixed mindset causes students to play it safe. In her research, Dweck found that students with a fixed mindset who got a problem wrong on a test weren’t interested in learning the correct answer because they had already failed.

Students benefit from a growth mindset How to foster a growth mindset Use “yet” Parent-Teacher Conferences ... or Collaborative Conversations? Parent-teacher conferences are one of the few opportunities for families to converse with teachers about their children's progress and needs. Lines of people wait their turn for these 15- to 20-minute interactions. One result is a conversation that establishes a relationship and delivers essential information about a student's progress.

Teachers usually carry the burden of making the conference productive, yet if families were included more through communications and collaborative meeting planning, the experience could become more mutually fruitful. To this end, I'll introduce each of my points with voices from families suggesting collaborative communication about their needs. Build a Team: Make Frequent Contacts Before Each Conference I hoped teachers would inform me between conferences if anything was amiss or pleasing about my children's progress, socially or academically, so that there would be no big surprises during the conferences. 1. 2. 3. 1.
