CharacterPlus Nat’l Conference attendees at a session on this book study

Join EducationPlus for a unique, free, online book study of Paul Tough’s best-selling book, “How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character.”

Participants in this study will explore Tough’s hypothesis that non-cognitive skills like persistence, self-control, curiosity, grit, conscientiousness and self-confidence are more crucial than sheer brainpower to achieving success. Participants will also address poverty and its impact on the lives of young people and the belief that these non-cognitive skills can help reduce some of the early learning deficits children face. Participants will need to purchase their own copy of the book or contact us in advance of the study.

Audience: Administrators, PreK-12 Classroom Teachers, Curriculum Coordinators, Instructional and Literacy Coaches
