Forces at Work

Tweens need the adults in their lives to acknowledge their self-doubt and then to suggest ways of addressing it. In learning situations, we should redirect the question away from global assessments of the individual's ability and toward the task at hand, suggesting, “Let's just see how this goes.” If the tween struggles in completing a task, we should point out specifically how he or she can improve: “This is what you need to do here,” and “This is what's causing the problem there.” And we should use the powerful effects of our praise to focus on effort and improvement: “Look how much better you're doing after putting in all that practice,” and “Your hard work really shows.”

Emotional Relationships and the Classroom

“Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King, Jr. Teaching character in schools can contribute to emotional development by creating a sense of community, fosters leadership, and instills life skills that students can use in and out of the classroom.

What goes on outside the classroom affects what is inside the class. Be aware of students influences and peer groups. The #1 thing a teacher can do for a student is get to know them. When you see social issues taking place - Be the person they can talk to and get them to seek help if needed. Learning how to handle relationships now will make them better partners as adults. Plus, school serves as a platform for how to manage breakups and how to deal with contributing factors in a mature way.

A study, published in the Journal of Family Psychology on June 12, found that when a parent believed a child was smart, that child tended to do better in school, and when a parent thought that a child was less capable, that child tended to do poorly the following year — by .21 GPA points on average among the nearly 400 teenagers from 17 Northeast school districts who, along with their parents, were part of the study.
