Perseverance and grit are the latest “buzzwords” going around in education.  Whether it is the result of the CCSS and its call for perseverance in problem solving and the increase in rigor, we need to take pause and understand why these are key to student success.  I am not planning to complete a long blog post.  I will just simply lead you to the works of Daniel Pink, Angela Lee Duckworth, Carol Dweck, and a recent article written by Rick Wormeli.
