As students undertake an activity, the teacher fosters grit through a series of strategies. This process can be conducted individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction. These strategies can be deployed as stand-alone activities or as part of a lesson.
Persistence, perseverance, grit, tenacity, conscientiousness, and resilience are all qualities that lead to improved academic performance (often measured by grades) as well as better life outcomes; these qualities can be developed through positive habits that focus on goal orientation, learning from mistakes, and deliberate practice.
Following are the items you must submit to earn this micro-credential and the criteria by which they will be evaluated. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1, 3, and 4 and a “Yes” for Part 2.
