Day Five of Our Discussion on Self-Determination, Grit and Academic Resilience

Dear One and All:

Welcome to the “official” final day our discussion.  We’ve come a long way, focusing on frameworks and practices from positive psychology that show promise for helping our students learn, persist and flourish.  I want to thank our panelists:  Beth Tuckwiller, Stel Gragoudas, Lindsey Anderson, and Philip Trejo for their time, effort, and insights.  A special thanks goes out to our student presenters, Mary Zrara and Alexis McGee, for making the time to share their experiences with us.
