How factors from our home, school, and community can cause students (high school or college) to believe that they can or cannot succeed in an academic environment
Using the below texts (readings) and concepts we’ve read and discussed, write a 4 full paged Essay Draft in MLA (Links to an external site.) format in which you analyze how factors from our home, school, and community can cause students (high school or college) to believe that they can or cannot succeed in an academic environment. To clarify:
Make an argument (thesis statement) for the above statement.
Include evidence from Mike Rose’s “I Just Wanna Be Average,” Carol Dweck’s “The Secret to Raising Smart Kids,” and/or Miles Corwin’s And Still We Rise to support and reinforce your analysis. Please use no more than 4-5 short quotes/paraphrases for the full draft. Only use 2 pieces of evidence for the draft
Please do not simply upload what you submitted for your draft or it WILL NOT be graded until you have revised your essay after receiving feedback from the Tutor. Real revision means changing, taking apart, and adding details. If you only correct grammar or change a few words, this IS NOT Revision.
Papers will be assessed according to:
MLA formatting and conventions
the concision of the prose and the clarity of your analysis
the quality of the examples chosen to support your analysis
how true you have been to the definitions of Dweck’s mindsets
