ASCD has just published the September issue of their periodical, Educational Leadership. Its theme is “Resilience and Learning.”
Here are some highlights:
The Significance of Grit: A Conversation with Angela Lee Duckworth doesn’t really have anything new to people familiar with Duckworth’s work, but it does provide a good overview. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of “Grit.”
Research Says / Grit Plus Talent Equals Student Success by Bryan Goodwin and Kirsten Miller is good. I’m adding it to the same list.
Havens of Resilience by Nan Henderson is a good piece.
I also like a piece on Research on Resilience.
Art and Science of Teaching / Cognitive Verbs and the Common Core by Robert Marzano is not connected to resilience, but it’s a useful piece. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Developing Academic English Skills & Vocabulary.
