True Grit: The Best Measure of Success and How to Teach It | Edutopia

gritNo matter how often you visit principalaim, there is one concept that I hope you consistently find in my work, and that is the notion that Grit is an essential tool for children of all ages. I truly believe it is the one skill that will (ultimately) determine each student’s long-term success. Edutopia blogger, Vicki Davis, has put together a wonderfully rich assortment of resources all about grit (including three of my favorites Angela Duckworth, Paul Tough, and Malcolm Gladwell). Check out Vicki’s blog here.
