Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
Resumen del pasaje:
In the TED Talk “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance,” Angela Lee Duckworth discusses the role that grit plays in success.
Cuándo y cómo vincularlos: Have students read this speech after they have read up to the chapter “To Have and to Hold.” In this and the previous chapters “The Circuit” and “Learning the Game,” Panchito displays the passion and perseverance that Duckworth describes in her talk. Have students decide which Panchito best exemplifies grit (working with Mr. Lema in the classroom, standing up to Carlos and his work in the librito) using quotes from both Duckworth and the previous three chapters to support their views.
