"Some schools are experimenting with teaching "grit," defined as persistence, determination and resilience. Research by Angela Duckworth, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania who coined the term and was awarded a MacArthur "genius grant" for it, shows promise for teaching the skills for it in schools. "This quality of being able to sustain your passions, and also work really hard at them, over really disappointingly long periods of time, that's grit," she said. "It's a very, I think, American idea in some ways -- really pursuing something against all odds.""
