A powerful call to action and a practical handbook for all teachers who want to stimulate and strengthen their pupils’ learning tenacity.
The second book in the Pedagogy for a Changing World series, Developing Tenacity investigates the value of tenacity in the educational setting and explores how resilience, character and grit can be developed in learners. Drawing on the pioneering work of Angela Duckworth (grit) and Carol Dweck (growth mindset), Lucas and Spencer harness the momentum of their findings and, in this book, present practical teaching strategies that will best nurture these capabilities in the classroom.
Suitable for all teachers and leaders, in both primary and secondary settings, who want to instil a strong sense of tenacity in their pupils’ approach to learning.
