In this class, you will discover what psychologist Angela Duckworth's research has learned about high achievers in her book Grit: The power of passion and perseverance. Her book provides a research-based explanation of her Grit theory, how to develop grit internally and externally and how passion and perseverance relate to social emotional learning (SEL). Teachers, parents, coaches, and others are provided with practical strategies to foster grit for students, children, adults, and for themselves.
