How does “grit,” as described by Duckworth, work in your own life?
Questions to Consider (you don’t have to answer all of these):
- How does “grit,” as described by Duckworth, work in your own life?
- Are there any points made by Duckworth that you feel are particularly significant? Why?
- Can you offer us any extraordinary examples of “grit” that you are aware of?
- Why would it be more important to praise a student’s effort rather than their intelligence?
- Are Duckworth’s insights applicable to your own trajectory as an artist/professional and university student? How can you integrate them into your work in this class, right now?
- Duckworth mentions Dweck’s theory of growth mindsets. Read the attached short article by Dweck, “Brainology,” and give us her definition of growth and fixed mindsets. How do they apply to you and your own approach to education and self-development? Can you identify when you are stuck in a fixed mindset or thriving in a growth mindset? Can you suggest ways it’s possible to shift from a fixed to a growth mindset?
Note that unlike literary discussion topics when we converse about a short story, students are only required to post once in this topic. But if you would like to comment on each other’s posts and discuss further, feel free!
