I liked a little thing I made up for the first day of class. 

Partly inspired by the growth mindset posts that were going around #education last week, I was casting about for ways to introduce those ideas to some groups which didn’t make a whole lot of progress last year.

Turns out there are lots of clips of weightlifting grandmas on the internet, but I found this very short clip of a lady named Winifred Pristell deadlifting 262 pounds last year when she was 74. She has an eponymous website with a bio that explains how she came to weightlifting after a health scare in her sedentary, obese 40s.  I decided to use her story.

Spent this week at a mathematical discussions PD, and I really want to make some sentence frames to put on my walls.
