Preview of what we will be doing on January 8:
Chapter TWO is long, so beware that you will want to devote about 2-3 hours to it. It is on HOW TO BUILD CHARACTER and actually you will find yourself filtering prior knowledge you may have about: character programs in your schools, incentive programs and whether they work, Carol Dweck’s work on mindset, Angela Duckworth’s work on grit. One the biggest takeaways for me is how the author juxtapositions two very diverse schools (one serving extreme wealth and one serving poverty). The end conclusions may surprize you!!
I look forward to your conversations and sharing from this chapter!
