Webinar content:

Section 1:  The 5 Student Mindsets

  • The 5 Student Mindsets:
      • How each mindset starts to form, according to the motivation cycle, and the perception of the child.
      • Overview of the characteristics of each mindset.
  • 2 Aspects of guiding kids to their academic potential:
      • Teaching and coaching them when they are already amenable to learning.
      • Emotional and behavioral management when they are not amenable to learning yet.

Section 2:  The 4 Stages of the Learning Process

  • About the 4 Stages of the Learning Process:
      • Learning.
      • Familiarizing.
      • Believing.
      • Challenging.
  • The Learning stage:
      • Using the format that works best for your child (textbooks vs. videos vs. audio).
      • Re-do problems.
      • Ask them to teach concepts to you.
      • Take breaks as needed.
  • The Familiarizing stage:
      • Allow kids to use their notes while practicing.
      • Create processes to follow (like in the picture).
      • Ask them to find their own mistakes.
  • The Believing stage:
      • Take away their notes.
      • Encourage them to self affirm when they feel intimidated.
      • Do mini-quizzes.
      • Ask questions like “on a scale of 1-10, how much effort did you put in?”
  • The Challenging stage:
      • Ask them to do harder problems.
      • Use timers to make easy work challenging.
      • Have a friendly competition with them.

Section 3:  Tips for Emotional/Behavioral Management

  • Tips for helping kids manage their emotions:
      • Reminder that learning is a sensitive process.
      • Praise them for being hard working, rather than smart.
      • Importance of monitoring our own perceptions about their strengths and weaknesses.
      • Focusing on teaching self accountability, rather than being accountable to us.
  • Example for teaching self accountability
      • Communicating influentially with kids.
      • Influential communication successfully persuades the other person to adopt the message as their own. 
  • Benefits of influentially communicating with kids.
      • Conflicts strengthen the bond, rather than weakening it.
      • Greater influence over their decisions.
      • Improve their self esteem and motivation without power struggles.
  • Developing the skill of influential communication.
      • Understand their perspective and the dynamic of each person’s position in a conflict.
      • Search for persuasive examples that resemble the same positioning.
      • Delineate the strategy that was used.
      • Apply the same strategy to your conflict.

Working one-on-one with hundreds of kids for over a decade has given her the chance to observe the role that emotions play in their decisions and motivation, academically and behavior wise.
