Amidon Planet Podcast E024: GRIT with Sam Gilbert
It was this combination of passion and perseverance that made high achievers special. In a word, they had grit.Angela Duckworth
What does it look like to foster grit through teaching? To help those we teach persevere with purpose? What does it mean to engage in deliberate practice? And what does any of this have to do with using a puzzle toy in a 2nd grade classroom?
In this episode of the Amidon Planet Podcast, Sam Gilbert and I discuss the featured book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. Sam has used the book to guide her research in her doctoral program and was gracious enough to discuss the book, and how the ideas can inform and improve our teaching, on this episode of the podcast.
