I’ve noticed a dangerous trend develop recently where, in an attempt to empower students, teachers have started calling them geniuses.
Catherina Fisher's insight:
It’s true that some people are born with talents that make certain tasks easier (geniuses fit this category), but all people can get smarter. There are many types of intelligences and we can develop them all, especially if we know how we learn best. Brain Power grows through effort and curiosity. Failure and iteration.
