I’ve written several posts about my ongoing experiment with having students visualize themselves succeeding academically.
I just discovered an article that describes how the Navy Seals have begun training their recruits to visualize themselves succeeding in difficult tasks:
With mental rehearsal they were taught to visualize themselves succeeding in their activities and going through the motions.
I’m going to convert the article to a short read aloud. This should get the attention of some of my students, especially the boys!
