As many educators know who have studied the growth mindset, teaching motivation and metacognitive principles is challenging.  While he started as a journalism teacher, now Chris works with students to try to help them understand motivation and success principles. He will share with us what works (and doesn’t) and also will tackle misconceptions and misapplications of the word “grit.” You can’t just tell students to “have grit” but there are things you can say instead.
