Boy Writers explores important questions such as:
a. What subjects are boy writers passionate about, and what motivates them as writers?
b. Why do boys like to incorporate violence into their stories, and how much should be allowed?
spoiler: the answer is all of it bc who are you to censor boys!!!!!!!!!!!!
my eyes rolled right out of my head i still haven’t found them
asfik no body in the field of education has ever even taken an aggressive anti ralph fletcher anti “boy writers reclaiming their voices" stance which is makes me wonder who is watching us what are we doing what stenhouse publishers what is this garbage.
Those with a fixed mindset believed their ideal mate would put them on a pedestal and make them feel perfect, like “the god of a one-person religion,” whereas those with the growth mindset preferred a partner who would recognize their faults and lovingly help improve them, someone who would encourage them to learn new things and became a better person. The fixed mindset, it turns out, is at the root of many of our most toxic cultural myths about “true love.” Dweck writes:
The growth mindset says all of these things can be developed. All — you, your partner, and the relationship — are capable of growth and change.
In the fixed mindset, the ideal is instant, perfect, and perpetual compatibility. Like it was meant to be. Like riding off into the sunset. Like “they lived happily ever after.”
One problem is that people with the fixed mindset expect everything good to happen automatically. It’s not that the partners will work to help each other solve their problems or gain skills. It’s that this will magically occur through their love, sort of the way it happened to Sleeping Beauty, whose coma was cured by her prince’s kiss, or to Cinderella, whose miserable life was suddenly transformed by her prince.
dweck AND romance myths, dweck ON romance myths ????? my school (and hopefully all schools???) are on a real growth mindset tick right now (well always, i’m sure, but explicitly right this moment, this year) so lots of growth mindset thinking in my life right now, but i love this in particular because growth mindset is quickly becoming the very common thread binding all the things that i believe in and i am so happy carol dweck has done this thinking, this binding, of these very important things. i feel peace in that (and always in things fitting together).
compliment #1: some of you look better in pink eyeshadow than i do.
(i feel like this could just v. easily become a (completely unnecessary at the moment, if we are honest) exercise in jealousy. ”if you are like me i like you.” ”if you exist in ways i wish i could but can’t yet i am happy for you / admire you (but also i kind of hate you) (i don’t think i can help it right now!!!!!!!!) (i am trying?) (maybe that is a more important thing to spend my time on than complimenting you right now….????).”)
see i don’t even think i can. what is “compliment” how to “compliment” how to smile what is alive. stop me.
if i am reading my internet research correctly (and i think that i am) i have to proclaim ~blessed~ on the internet before i can be ~blessed~ irl
(which eerily matches my “fake it til you make it” outlook, but also i am not a ~so blessed~ person so i guess i just can’t ever be ~so blessed~ person. i don’t have a ~so blessed~ attitude) (this is all really strange, i have a headache and i am not sure what is real)
