So apparently everyone is writing about grit this week.
Find not one, not two, but three pieces below that dive into all things grit. How does it play a role in student success? How do we teach students to be gritty? Is this skillset all it's made out to be? Grit grit grit.
Also in our weekly edtech roundup is an article by PBS Newshour on filling the "coding gap," as well as a post from Mindshift on supporting and motivating students with chronic stress.
Good reads + long weekend = yes.
