How to change your narrative about your ability to learn
A week before Thanksgiving a new movie, based on the true story of the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod, starring Tom Hanks, will play in a theater near you.

• Middle school or Junior high
• High School

We gravitate to the narratives that best explain our emotions. In this way, narrative and memory become one. The memories we organize meaningfully become those that are better remembered. Narrative provides not only meaning but also a mental framework for imbuing future experiences and information with meaning, in effect shaping new memories to fit our established constructs of the world and ourselves.
If we change the narrative your ability to learn via memory and mental performance will follow.
To change your learning narratives you need to confront them with rational thought and believe the science about our ability to learn and then change your mindset through vigorous Learning Frames practice.
