GRIT in the classroom

Grit Summer Speaker Series

Grit seems to be one of the “it” words in education; however, at my current institution, Lone Star College-Tomball, we have learned that grit is more than just the latest educational buzz word.  We are learning that when grit is embedded in the learning experience, student success, student persistence, and even student grades increase. We have learned that grit can be developed, and gritty behaviors can be taught and should be encouraged in the classroom. I will use this space to share strategies and lessons that I have included in past class and in my current classes.

You can also view GritCast, a YouTube channel, with various playlists on grit and how to infuse grit in your classrooms.
