"What is grit? Grit is the determination to achieve long-term goals, often against difficult odds. The word grit is often used as an umbrella term to describe being resilient, persistent, and having the will to deal with and overcome obstacles. Because learning is often a challenge, a student's grit can make the difference between failing and making the grade. Students who develop grit can improve their academic performance through strengthened resiliency and perseverance. Grit traits become good habits that enable students to persist in the face of adversity, setbacks, and disappointments when pursuing their goals in school and out. Although grit is not an academic skill, the good news is that it can be taught in school, not as an add-on, but through strategies that can be easily incorporated into an existing curriculum. This book will provide a roadmap for how to "go gritty" in the classroom, and the classroom strategies to get youand your studentsthere."

Die neue Formel zum Erfolg: Leidenschaft Ausdauer und Zuversicht Eine Mischung aus Ausdauer und Leidenschaft, nicht IQ, Startbedingungen oder Talent entscheidet über den Erfolg eines Menschen. Diese These hat die Neurowissenschaftlerin und Psychologin Angela Duckworth in dem Wort GRIT zusammengefasst, das im Englischen so viel wie Biss oder Mumm heißt, und hat damit weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Auf Basis ihrer eigenen Geschichte, von wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und anhand ungewöhnlicher Leistungsbiografien ist sie dem Geheimnis von erfolgreichen Menschen auf den Grund gegangen, seien sie Sportler, Bankmanager oder Comiczeichner. Sie weist nach, dass nicht "Genie", sondern eine einzigartige Kombination aus Begeisterungsfähigkeit und langfristigem Durchhaltevermögen darüber entscheidet, ob man seine Ziele erreicht. Mit zahlreichen Beispielen, die jeder auf seine Situation anwenden kann, erläutert Angela Duckworth das Konzept der motivierten Beharrlichkeit. Und sie fordert dazu auf, im Wissen um GRIT Lernen und Bildung neu zu denken.

Speaking out against decades of injustice and challenging deficit perceptions of young learners and their families, It's Not About Grit pulls back the veil, revealing the social systems that marginalize and stigmatize mostly poor, urban students of colour and their communities. At the same time, author Steven Goodman, for nearly 35 years founder and director of NYC's highly acclaimed Educational Video Center (EVC), shows the tremendous intelligence, resilience, and sense of agency of these students. Through the students' in-school and out-of-school experiences, enhanced with curriculum guides and award-winning video clips from EVC, Goodman encourages educators to make a difference and demonstrates how to create safe and inclusive spaces where their teaching responds to students' culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, housing status, and ability. Teachers will use this book to develop a pedagogy of transformative teaching.

For success in school and life, students need more than proficiency in academic subjects and good scores on tests; those goals should form the floor, not the ceiling, of their education. To truly thrive, students need to develop attributes that aren’t typically measured on standardized tests. In this lively, engaging book by veteran school leader Thomas R. Hoerr, educators will learn how to foster the “Formative Five” success skills that today’s students need, including • Empathy: learning to see the world through others’ perspectives. • Self-control: cultivating the abilities to focus and delay self-gratification. • Integrity: recognizing right from wrong and practicing ethical behavior. • Embracing diversity: recognizing and appreciating human differences. • Grit: persevering in the face of challenge. When educators engage students in understanding and developing these five skills, they change mindsets and raise expectations for student learning. As an added benefit, they see significant improvements in school and classroom culture. With specific suggestions and strategies, The Formative Five will help teachers, principals, and anyone else who has a stake in education prepare their students—and themselves—for a future in which the only constant will be change.
Wie oft werden wir im Alltag aufgefordert, optimistisch zu sein und positiv zu denken. Es komme nur darauf an, unsere Ziele mit höchster Konzentration anzugehen, dann würden sich die Ergebnisse wie von selbst einstellen. Die Psychologin Gabriele Oettingen weist nach, dass diese Gleichung nicht aufgeht. Ihr Konzept präsentiert einen überraschend neuen Ansatz der Selbstmotivation, dessen Wirksamkeit in zahllosen Untersuchungen bestätigt wurde: Sobald die Menschen nicht nur positiv denken, sondern auch Hindernisse in ihren Planungen berücksichtigen, gelingt es ihnen besser, ihre individuellen Ziele zu erreichen.
