    Grit: The Power and Passion of Perseverance written by Angela Duckworth provided methods for me to show students that deliberate practice and effort are more important than an IQ test. By teaching all students why effort is the driver of achievement and success, students learn to value a growth mindset and are capable of reaching high expectations. Students see effort as an important character trait and are making opportunities out of mistakes, bouncing back from failure, and creating their own successful future by being gritty. I already see an increase in student effort from implementing a culture of grit in my classroom.
