I am the unfit brother
They send me to eat in the room
When visitors comes,
But i chuckle,
And eat well,
And grow strength.
I’ll be at the kitchen Table
When company comes,
Say to me.
“Eat in the room,”
They’ll not see how beautiful i am
And be humiliated
I,too, am America.

Gate Icons and Imperatives
A recent study showed that many students have a fixed mindset when thinking about the future and it’s origins lead back to little details in one’s childhood. Carol Dweck concluded from an experiment that people’s mindsets are different. In a study with the soccer team the Blackburn Rovers, Dweck found that certain players weren’t reaching their full potential(¶.1). This was due to a common myth that said one’s talent -was gained at birth, not developed.This same issue is what is occurring with many children. Children then feel like they can’t learn or get better and give up, because they are scared to fail.
The growth mindset theory is important because it shows how one's own mind can be it’s limitation to learn. Moreover, it changed teacher’s way of teaching across the world and it also broke common belief that one’s intelligence was inherited.The growth and fixed mindset matters because some people have problems like the fixed mindset that gets bad grades. In an article by US News, it states that parents are treating children when they succeed like if it’s a consolation prize. Not only has the growth mindset affected student’s way of thinking by showing their intelligence can grow and doesn’t stay the same, it has affected teacher’s way of teaching, and the way parents parent as well.
For our poster we chose to put buildings because buildings show growth and reaching the sky. Also, we chose to draw the details sign and origins imperative to show which one’s we used. To symbolize growth vs fixed mindset, we made a building that represents how fixed mindset stays at one level and how growth mindset rises to the top.
