  • 97. Researchers have learned that cues can be almost anything, from a visual trigger such as a candy bar or a television commercial to a certain place, a time of day, an emotion, a sequence of thoughts, or the company of particular people. Routines can be incredibly complex or fantastically simple (some habits, such as those related to emotions, are measured in milliseconds). Rewards can range from food or drugs that cause physical sensations, to emotional payoffs, such as the feelings of pride that accompany praise or self-congratulation.

  • 100. Remember to post to the discussion by Thursday and respond to at least two students by Sunday Due Monday:  Choose two paragraphs from The Power of Habit where Duhigg makes an interesting point.  Write a paraphrase for each paragraph.  You should have two paraphrases!
  • 101. Meet in Computer Commons A after the break. There will be a sign-in sheet and I will remove it when the break is over.
  • 102.  With a partner, select a different paragraph from Chapter 1 of The Power of Habit  Paraphrase the paragraph using the techniques we just worked on
  • 103. To integrate a paraphrase properly within a paragraph, a good writer usually has (1) At least one sentence to introduce the paraphrase, (2) the paraphrase itself, and (3) at least one sentence to comment on the paraphrase.
  • 104. Top piece of bread: at least one sentence to introduce the paraphrase Meat: paraphrase with proper documentation Bottom piece of bread: at least one sentence to explain, comment on, or provide an example of the paraphrase (usually the majority of the paragraph)
  • 105. Begin with a topic sentence that gives the reader a sense of what the single main idea of the paragraph will be. This sentence should be one of the “supporting reasons” for your thesis statement. It should have opinion!
  • 106. This is the part of your paragraph where you support your topic sentence by including a specific point taken from the “proof text” (the essay, article, book, everyday life, etc. you are writing about or analyzing). The evidence is a paraphrase or quotation.
  • 107. You want to explain your topic sentence and its connection to the evidence. You want to include your analysis here. Why did you include the quotation or paraphrase? What do you want to say about it? You should include specific examples to illustrate your points (these examples should come from you, not the source), but be sure to show how your examples connect to your statement (topic sentence). This section should comprise the majority of the paragraph.
  • 108. Statement: I used to believe that if a particular subject was difficult for me that I was just not gifted with intelligence in that area; now that I am moving toward a growth mindset, I understand that my knowledge in anything is dependent on the amount of effort I put into learning.
  • 109. Evidence: According to Carol Dweck, students with a fixed mindset believe that people are naturally smart in certain subjects whereas those with a growth mindset understand that they are capable of understanding anything with the right amount of effort.
  • 110. Explanation: I tell people that I am bad at math, but I am working on changing that attitude to a more realistic self-view. I earned average grades in my high school math classes, but the concepts did not come easily to me. In my college algebra class, I watched as other students breezed through tests and quizzes and I felt like I was struggling to pass. Instead of realizing that I needed to put more work into the class, I put the responsibility on others. I decided the teacher was boring. I imagined that the other students just understood the material right away. I began to miss class and skip assignments. Of course, my actions resulted in a failing grade. At the time, I was quick to shift the blame to other people and circumstances, but the truth was that I was making excuses rather than trying because I did not want to try and fail. Doing so would affirm my biggest fear: I was dumb. I have come to realize that I truly earned the F, not because of my lack of natural math skills, but because of my own lack of effort.
