Judith Polgar
- Youngest daughter of 3 daughters who were raised by their parents with the intention of
making them all chess grandmasters
-
With Ericssons work, whether a child will be interested in a particular area is how they interact
with the task/domain, and there will be individual differences
- Passion shapes the areas in which we are most likely to perform more deliberate
practice
- Mental representation allows you chunk a huge amount of information and act
appropriately upon it → the result of deliberate practice
- Mike and Ryan Sullivan (hockey father and son) had an athletic family system= distinct
social system that centers on the sports involvement of children
Benjamin Bloom’s research on the development of expertise
- Extensive interviews of 120 young people (+ their parents and coaches) → all were top
25 in US in their field
- Identified as talented in: arts, athletics, academics
- Tried to understand the developmental path of kids who grow up to be experts; looked at
home environments, diff stages
- Home environments of youngsters who become elite performers:

child’s skills
- Focus more on the next generation develop
- #2: achievement oriented

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
