More Specifically:Your essay must include your argument about growth mindset. You can argue that growth mindset is the most important factor in improving student success (taking Dweck’s side) or you can argue that there are other factors that are more important than growth mindset (taking from either Hilton or Kohn). That means you need a thesis that states your answer to the above question and topic sentences that give reasons for your answer. You also need support for your argument in the form of cited material and personal experience. Your thesis may look something like this:’The idea of growth mindset is the most important aspect of improving our education system because….(3 reasons you think so). OR’The idea of growth mindset is not the most important aspect of improving our education system because we need to consider….. (think of what you find more important, probably from the Hilton and Kohn articles). You are required to cite both personal experience and the texts we discussed. Your body paragraphs should be formatted as PIEIE paragraphs. Your P should be a topic sentence (reason) in your own words, your (I )should be personal examples or quotes from the articles and your E should be explanations/analysis that connect back to the thesis.
