Will grit be the greatest predictor of student and teacher success in the new science standards? Learn how the new standards represent a big picture approach to science curriculum and instruction that will challenge classroom rigor. Learn what it means to be "gritty" and why success favors the supportive demanding coach, not the authoritarian sage in a next generation classroom. Three main take-aways from this free, 1-hour discussion are: how science and engineering practices engage a new definition of rigor; redesigning science tasks to motivate and invest students in their own learning; and ways to develop grit and rigor in your science team (or classroom).
