Session 4 on 10/20/2015: Helpful Study Habits

Summary: Firstly, we had a short introduction about how I try to change my negative self-talk related to teaching, then you got into pairs and discussed your homework and the negative and positive phrases you say to yourself while problem solving, self-starting, self-guiding, self-coping, and self-reinforcing. Then we tried to preview a video from the article by Elizabeth Smith, however I could not find it, so I provided you an overview for your homework assignment for this session without the video. Finally, you wrote your reflection report for this class.
