1. or Reading Response One (RR1) write 2 paragraphs about Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck and “Mindfulness in Higher Education” by Mirabi Bush.
When composing your Reading Response, choose one of the prompts below:
Do you believe that the thoughts you hold about yourself affect your life?
What are the consequences of thinking that your intelligence or personality is something you can develop, as opposed to something that is fixed, deep-seated trait?
Do you worry about looking stupid in front of others, or do you not care what people think and ask questions anyway?
Begin your RR with a quotation. The quotation must be located underneath a title created from your imagination. Throughout your RR, you will explain the quotation without explicitly referring to it. Remember, it is Dweck or Bush you are responding to not the quotation. See the example RRs and the outline for format.
2. Describe a friend who supported and explain the way the support help you.
