Habits of Mind Mini-Essay Reflect on a challenge you experienced in high school

Habits of Mind Mini-Essay
Reflect on a challenge you experienced in high school or at work. Pick one tip based on Everyone’s An Author chapter 1, or on class discussion, or on your own personal experience that helped you overcome the challenge (or WOULD have helped you if you had known about it).
When developing content for this mini-essay, be sure to
·         Describe the challenge
·         Define or summarize one quality or habit of mind (in your own words)
·         Explain how the quality/habit of mind could help with the challenge
·         Draw on free writes, notes, or what you remember from class discussion
Note: There is no correct answer.  Take a few minutes to think about the readings and your stance before you begin writing. Be sure to organize and develop your ideas, make any revisions that you think are necessary, and to proofread your response before turning it in.
Content
Your paper should include the following information:
an introduction, a body, and a conclusion (about two double-spaced, typed pages)
a demonstration of why this tip is useful (think of this as your main point or thesis statement)
specific examples from the readings, discussion, and/or your experience that support, clarify, illustrate, and/or defend your stance.
