i am me because of you


You have been thinking about your weaknesses. The things you need to improve and build more confidence with. I would like you to choose the one thing that you REALLY want to target now as a learner. What do you need to work on now over the next few weeks.

Our plan is to give you time in class to work on your kryptonite. In a few weeks time or whenever you are ready to share your learning growth you will need to provide evidence that you have improved.

If you are every going to improve you need to give it – effort, time and energy. The more you put into your kryptonite the better you are going to be at it.

You know what the golden circle is. I have attached one below here for you. Use this to develop your plan of what you are going to do about it. First think about what your kryptonite is and then start with the why. If you cannot do this then you may want to change your kryptonite to something else.

The golden circle will help you to frame your thinking and make an action plan. I am very interested in the HOW. How are you going to turn it around? How are you going to prove that you have got better at it?



Comments on: "Be clear about your learning intention" (19)

  1. My weakness is algebra because I get easily confused in it.

    If I can learn the rules of algebra in the fun way, I will start to develop in this area. I will start with a simple rule of apples, oranges and pears. Apples can only add/subtract other apples. Apples can not add/subtract from oranges and pears.

    The more I practice, the more confident I will be in answering algebra questions.

    My kryptonite is Talking/presenting to a big audience. Why: It is my weakness, because I have butterflies in my tummy. I feel nervous and anxious. How: I am going to ask people to watch me talk about my Poster. I will keep on doing that until I’m confident. What: I am not going to walk away from it. I will give it all my time and energy.

    As I said in class, my biggest kryptonite is speaking to a large audience (about 50 or more people). I want to improve on it and become very confident and stop being shy and nervous. Maybe this year I could take part for the School Drama Production. After I perform in that, speaking to an audience will be as easy as speaking to one person/some friends! Ask Sahil Patel (5A). He is now very, very confident.

    I forgot to say something:
    Why: I get very nervous and shy and I start to stammer(um……um….e-energy…).
    How: I will ask some friends that have spoken confidently to an audience(Sahil,etc.). I will also keep on practicing in assemblies and School Production(if I get the part).
    What: I will keep practicing and never give up!

    As I said my biggest kryptonite is time management skills. It is my biggest kryptonite because after the day when I get home I am tired and do almost everything slowly. I am going to develop this area by sleeping early at night so the next day I am fresh until night.

    Why:My biggest kryptonite is forgetfulness(sorry I had to do it!) because I tend to lose my things at school
    How:I’ll make a mental check-list and Ricky, who picks me up from school, will remind me about it
    What:I’ll keep practicing my mental checklist everyday before leaving for home

  9. Thank you for writing such honest and accurate comments to reveal your Kryptonite. This is often the most difficult and biggest step in working out what is important to you and how you are going to turn things around. Together we will by focusing on ways to make you more confident and comfortable with your weaknesses. It is the only way to make improvements! Mr. Chad

  10. I really like how some of you have used the three rings of the golden circle to organize your thinking. Why? How? What? This shows that you are transferring what you learn and you are getting it! YES! Mr. Chad
