I Know Better
Step two: Do better. Take your understanding and awareness and do something about it. It is the movement of your body, the implementation of a practice. It is the picking up of the guitar that comes after the wanting to learn to play.
I Know Better
That song originally I thought shouldn't be on a Tame Impala album, because it has this dorky, white disco funk. I wouldn't call it cheesy, but it's not trying to be too cool, because the lyrics are pretty dorky and the groove is pretty dorky. But at the same time, for me, I love that kind of music. I don't know why, but I've been obsessed with disco for the last year or two.
The official music video for the song was uploaded on 29 November 2015 to the group's Vevo channel. It is sexually explicit. The video follows a male high school basketball player lusting after a cheerleader, who soon begins a relationship with the team's gorilla mascot (named "Trevor", a reference to the lyric "She was holding hands with Trevor" in the song). The music video was filmed by the Barcelona-based creative collective and directors known as Canada. The two primary lovebirds in the video are played by Spanish actors: the cheerleader is portrayed by actress Laia Manzanares; the basketball player by actor Albert Baró.

Whenever the ladies in town would enviously gossip about how my mother managed to get so much done in a day, I would smile knowingly to myself. I knew better than to boast that my mother was a witch, for some reason, being a witch was a bad thing.
The song is about Elsa and Anna as little girls complaining about all the things princesses are expected to do, claiming they "know better." The song follows their adolescence, from being close best-friends, to Anna growing into a beloved classic variation of a princess, and Elsa into a loner and feared out-cast, and the divide that grows between the two, despite Elsa's attempts to keep their bond alive.

I adore Maya Angelou. Her books moved me deeply as a young woman and they still line my bookshelves today. Her quote, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better," has stuck with me for a long time.
We can know that we need to do something or handle a situation a particular way but we don't always make the better choice. One part of us may absolutely know it's the best choice to make but another part may be in the lead in that moment. Like a fearful part, a protective part.
Maya Angelou said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." To me, this says to make the choice. Choose your strongest, clearest, fearless, most courageous or most vulnerable part and allow that to take the lead. Then take the better action. Totally different, right?
Here's why it mattered to me: In spite of knowing that it was pretty smart to do something to prepare my family, I hadn't. And I knew better. We had camping gear I could have inventoried to see what we could use during an emergency, but I didn't. I could have looked into earthquake insurance for our home, but I didn't. The list went on and on. It was ultimately up to me to make a different choice. Because I knew better and it was bothering me.
I was definitely trying to do the best I could as a parent, but it wasn't until I was informed of the disaster risks surrounding us that I became annoyed by my lack of follow through. I knew better but I wasn't doing better.
To my great relief, after understanding that I knew better, I also realized how many tiny steps I had already taken. The thing was, they were so quickly met with my own resistance that I felt I hadn't gotten anywhere. All I could see was the lack of progress, forgetting that I'd even tried.
Now, just a few short weeks before Terra Frma launches the Grab + Go Box, I'm sitting here writing this to you and beginning my journey through the steps in the box. It was hard to wait all this time but I wanted to know what our customer would experience. My husband got inspired and purchased us earthquake insurance. I just finished going through our camping and outdoor gear and organizing it for a quick departure. We stocked our pantry with extras of what we routinely eat. We're storing water. A lot of it. Next, we're making our various emergency kits.
I'm choosing to do better because the parts of me that are ready to are now in the lead. That, to me, is the key to Maya Angelou's quote. I can push myself to do better, but I have to be open. I have to know there's some sort of path I can go down, and at the end is completion. If I'm feeling resistance or fearful but need to get a task done, I have to use my courageous, clear, vulnerable self and find a way forward. And you can, too.
I have the Terra Frma Guidebook in my hands right now, showing me how to prepare, practice and recover. I know better and now I'm choosing to do better because I'm finally open and ready, with a product in my hands. There's a light at the end of the tunnel.
In general, the newer an expectation, or the further a child is away from meeting it, the more narration is needed to ensure they know what you expect. As children know your expectations and simply stray from them by dint of being human (we all get distracted and need resetting!), the shorter the corrections can be, allowing you to say short and positive phrases in an assertive way.
We enjoy things we feel we are good at, and getting better at. Deep thought can only take place in the context of a rich landscape of examples, exceptions and intellectual self-confidence. Teaching a rule and building fluency creates the context for the surprisingly deep and difficult thought that underpins place value.
2. Use as many memory aids and links as you can. They more ways that pupils can recall something and know that they are remembering correctly, the better. There is no use in a pupil correctly recalling the process to find the median if they doubt they have it correct. That is nearly as bad as not remembering at all, as it will feel futile to proceed. Even the weirdest memory aids can be valuable: my Y9s suggested remembering median with two prompts: (1) think of it as medIaN, because it is IN the middle, and (b) it sounds like medium, and medium is the middle size. These are not sophisticated, but it allows them two have two ways to recall the process, and two ways to feel they are on the right path.

[A rat is sniffing an old banana peel when it hears a bell. It squeals in horror and runs away as a bike rolls right over its head over a wooden ramp. Lana is riding the bike, and Hops is sitting on a chair attached to the top of her helmet. The bike lands hard on the ground and loses several nuts and springs as Lana pedals on.]Lana: How ya doin' up there, Hops?[Hops croaks and rubs his bottom in discomfort.]Lana: My bad, bud. I didn't mean to hurt your little frog butt; Ol' Red doesn't ride like she used to.[The bike hops and loses more parts. Hops ribbits in excitement and Lana screeches to a stop just across the street from a shop. Inside the shop is a brand-new red bicycle with a flame-painted sidecar.]Lana: [She and Hops run up to the shop window.] Whoa![Lana imagines herself racing the bicycle with Hops in the sidecar and several people on the sidelines. Lana launches the bike into the air and puts on a pair of sunglasses, then she lands and rides the bike into the sunset as the vision ends.]Lana: Man, that bike is perfect for us! [She glances at the bike and gasps. The bike's price tag reads $300.] Three hundred bucks? How many years' worth of allowance is that? [frowns] Aw, there's no way we could ever afford it.Flynn: [offscreen] Incoming! [He is skidding out of control on his bicycle and zooms right past Lana. He crashes into a tree offscreen as a tire falls off his bike.] Sorry about that, Lana. I sweat a lot when I ride, and sometimes my hands slip off the brakes. [His hands are drenched in sweat.]Lana: Don't worry, Flynn. It's nothing that Wrenchy and I can't handle. [A montage is shown of Lana fixing Flynn's bike.] And finished! [Spins her wrench and blows the tip]Flynn: [Comes down from the tree] Wow, that was awesome! [Reaches into his pocket and pulls out some money] Here, let me give you some of my allowance. [Hops grabs the money with his tongue, and Flynn is back on his bike.] Well, see you in class tomorrow. [Flynn pedals away.]Lana: [A lightbulb appears over her head.] Hops, I know how we can get that bike! There's gotta be other people in town who need their rides repaired. We can do mechanic work for money![Hops leaps into Lana's arms and croaks in agreement.]Lana: I even know where we can set up shop![Hops croaks] 041b061a72
