What is grit? Research psychologist Angela Duckworth describes grit as “perseverance and passion for long-term goals” and studies show that students who exhibit grit are more engaged and motivated and take greater responsibility for their own learning. We also know the value about teaching about mindsets – changing how students think about their own abilities and responsibility for learning. As educators, practitioners and/or parents we need tools to provide the right environment to unleash students’ curiosity, engagement and time spent on task.
