Use hands-on activities in conjunction with academic lessons to advance social emotional learning. To be successful in today’s world young people need more than academics. Perseverance, delaying gratification, the ability to take risks, and bouncing back from failures and disappointments are positive behaviors that can be developed and incorporated into daily lessons at school. Each of the 25 ready-to-use lesson plans for grades 5 through 10 emphasizes an important executive function such as exercising self-control and connects it to a Boys Town social skill such as persevering on a task.

Students will learn to define grit, determine if they have grit, and practice using grit: Generating Relentless Inner Toughness. The creative lessons are active, hands-on and technology-based. Suggestions for flipped classroom ideas are given. A CD provides reproducible worksheets, social skill posters and handouts. Part of the From Black & White to Living Color series which also includes the picture book, GRIT & Bear It!
