Here We Go Again! Does Teaching Kids To Get 'Gritty' Help Them Get Ahead?

Here We Go Again! Does Teaching Kids To Get 'Gritty' Help Them Get Ahead? | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Education circles are abuzz with a new concept: that resilience and persistence are just as important as intelligence to predicting student success and achievement. But can "grit" actually be taught?
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Grit is not teachable, but it is learnable. Placed in caring and supportive environments, students have the opportunity to learn grit and what it takes to succeed. This means adults have to know when to help and when to step back based on the child. I used Costa and Kallick's habits of mind along with critical thinking as a foundation and it works.

Muito bom! Na minha opinião não faz sentido ligar esta competência ao seculo XXI, é necessária para viver bem em todos os séculos, não?

 

Very good article. In my opinion doesn´t make sense link resilience to xxi century, its needed to leave well into all centuries. No?

Resiliency is a competency that isn't new per say however in our testing times we, as leaders, are called upon to remain agile, nimble and resilient in the face of tsunami changes.  I really liked this resource for the great research references it provides including the infographic.  Thanks for sharing it @DavidHain, and for caring about developing others, you're a Giant in the LeadWithGiants community on G+.

Written from a teacher-student perspective, but equally applicable to work settings too!
