Golf, healthy eating, and homework

Every school year is a reboot. It’s a chance for students to start fresh and do their very best. As we get further into the school year, every term becomes a new opportunity to start fresh. And drilling down even further, every assignment presents an opportunity to start fresh. Here’s what we need to remind our students: one poor test, paper, project, or homework assignment is just that, one poor one. It’s just like playing golf or eating healthy. One might have a bad hole or eat an unhealthy meal, but that doesn’t preclude them from getting back on track on the next hole or for their next snack or meal. A misstep only compounds if we don’t reset our mindset and change our approach when we have a fresh opportunity to do so.
