I wrote a blog entry about Grit back in July because I believe in the concept and value behind Grit. I am glad someone smart and gritty, like Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth is also exploring the value in Grit.
I am pretty certain that Dr. Duckworth is a lot smarter than I am, since she just became a MacArthur Fellow. Angela also spoke about her work recently at TED Talks Education in 2013. Congratulations to Angela and her work!!!
