Grade 8, Lesson 3
Family Lesson Summary
This week, your child learned how using good strategies can help him or her learn new things, get smarter, and change mindset to a growth focus. We discussed new learning strategies that might work better, and how to work smarter not harder.
Family Lesson Question
Ask your child about something he or she learned in the past. Talk with your child about how he or she used both hard work and strategies to learn. Discuss new learning strategies they might try in the future.
Each week we'll post a summary of the Second Step Lesson from Monday/Tuesday Xblock. This is a great opportunity to use the "Family Lesson Question" below to start a conversation with your child about the topic.
