    "Graduation Mindset: After completing the self-assessment for this section, it had me comparing the Title 1 school I taught at, to the school I currently teach at. Thinking about graduation rates, they are lower at lower income schools. The graduation rates are lower there for many reasons but the graduation rate for the high school my students attend is higher. I still think there is room for improvement for the school and district, when it comes to graduation rates. Some factors that could cause a student to not graduate could be needing to work and getting into the work force, they may not see the benefits in graduating, they don’t see a way to go to college so they think they don’t need to graduate. Ways we can help our students to want to graduate could be to encourage them to go to college. Explain to them the benefits of college and how it could further their life. Graduation on a resume could help them find better jobs after school, as well. Arts education and physical activity can play a role in whether or not a student graduates or even wants to come to school. These outlets let students express themselves and have something to strive in. Being in the arts or being a sports team could also lead to a path to higher education. When a student is in high school, they should think about the career they want to go after. Some people want to be a hair dresser, which doesn’t require higher education and some people want to be doctors, which does require higher education. Thinking about these two things should play a role in whether or not a student should ready or college or not. Reflecting on the daily questions, it has me thinking about making sure I communicate to my students the importance in graduating. My students should know I am pushing them to graduate, the importance in that and how it can further their life. We could discuss in class how God could use their graduation as a way to move their forward and open doors for them. Thinking about music or physical activity, I love sports. I always talk sports with my students and if they are an athlete, I challenge them to be their best and ask them if they want to play sports in college. I push them to dream for something big like that. The strategies I could take to empower my students to be ready for college or a career is to think about what God may have them do with their life and which route would be best to take to achieve that. A strategy I would like to include in my classroom is to prepare for college and careers. I remind my students daily that God can give them a calling on their life at any time and be ready for the next steps when that happens. I want my students to be thinking about their futures at an early age and whether or not college is right for them. We could discuss different jobs they could enter into and have them think about which one could God be calling them to. Also, I think it’s important to link behaviors with outcomes. Their behaviors now and what they are doing now will have an outcome in their life later on. Linking the content is important as well. One thing that is great about this with teaching the Bible is explaining how God has a plan for their life and helping them navigate if they feel like God is calling them to go to college or not or straight into the work force.
