I am always reading and researching trends and ideas in kids’ education. I want to share with you what I have been reading so you can benefit as well.
The first book is about something you may have been hearing a lot about recently. It has been a popular buzzword in education the last few years, grit. But what is grit exactly? And how do we cultivate it in ourselves and our children?
In Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, an instant New York Times bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed be it parents, students, educators, athletes or business people that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls grit.
