True Grit

Retention is a key element when discussing adult education. How do we keep students motivated? How do we provide students with the skills they need to persevere? The answer seems to be in ‘grit.’ “Grit is passion and perseverance for a very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. It is a mindset.”

Follow us in October as we share retention tips and strategies to help students succeed.

One thought on “True Grit

  1. In my book “On Character and Mental Toughness” (Amazon/B &N/Kindle) I define mental toughness as the ability to keep your character under pressure. I also define the core Mental Toughness traits. These are skills I teach on a daily basis. I have been a public school teacher and coach for over 20 years. These #grit traits transcend athletics and academics. When we discuss 21st century skills, this EVERY century skill that separates the victorious from the vanquished too often gets left out. I have seen so many kids, many dealing with horrid circumstances , achieve a great deal when they have had the opportunity to learn perseverance! This is a rising tide which will lift all of our students!-@coachbillmoore
