Product reviews for Developing Tenacity

John Morris, Director, JTM Educational Consultants
Developing Tenacity is an inspirational book focusing on strategies to promote students' skills and competencies, which the authors term as -˜capabilities'. The authors discuss at length what they consider to be key transferrable skills - including resilience, curiosity, zest, creativity, grit and determination - with the key emphasis on tenacity linked closely to the work of Carol Dweck.

Teaches and tutors in schools and colleges will derive effective strategies from the section on -˜cultivating tenacity', with its focus on creating the classroom climate, building learner engagement and presenting a teacher-led example of how to think tenaciously. The authors, drawing on their work at the Centre for Real-World Learning, show that effort matters more than innate ability - both within and outside the classroom.

Developing Tenacity is a book of the highest quality, showing how teachers can cultivate tenacity in their students to inspire them to reach new levels of performance.
