Grit Grant - Partnering with Baltimore City Schools

posted Oct 29, 2014, 1:13 PM by Amy Lyon
Amy is working with a small team of people including Angela Duckworth, from the University of Pennsylvania Character Lab, to conduct a grant to increase GPA and grit levels in students within the Baltimore School District.  The observation part of the work has just begun in three middle schools, specifically in sixth grade classrooms.  As the grant work continues, emphasis will be placed on ideas and interventions that teachers can use to foster grit, and ultimately, hopefully, raise GPA scores.
