What kind of thinkers do we want our children to be?
How can we best equip them to succeed?
These burning questions that guide our practice are the subject of Paul Tough’s book, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character.
A journalist, Tough combines his school and program studies with
leading education research. Focusing on the collaboration between KIPP,
Riverdale Country School and researchers Marty Seligman and Angela
Duckworth, the book offers fantastic insight into how research and
practice can join forces to create powerful impact.
I started reading the book over the holidays and will be writing reflections throughout the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
