5 tips for teaching 'grit' in the classroom

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 22, 2014 6:03 PM

Like others for whom I have much respect, I prefer the term 'resilience' to 'grit' but that is a minor matter.

 

There is much to reflect upon and use in this post that is positive and while the debate on whether resilience  can be taught explicitly will continue, there is no doubt that the school culture and climate can contribute much towards acknowledging and cultivating resilience.

 

Schools are places where the quality of relationships is critical and thus resilience can be cultivated, but I do not agree with the statement "..when students do demonstrate perseverance, do not tell them good job." That is a simplistic comment. Children and young adults, like older adults, need positive reinforcement and encouragement. All humans need acknowledgement of a good well done and we all wish to develop a positive student culture and climate in a school. We do not want students doing something just for the acknowledgement, but being relational creatures, communication and positive acknowledgement assist in our development.
