Friday Evening Presentation

"The Gift of Failure: Raising Autonomous and Competent Children"

Jessica Lahey
Author, Educator, Speaker, and New York Times Columnist

What's the best way to motivate students to own their education and develop grit and resilience? Research has shown that the key to all these things is intrinsic motivation, or motivation that comes from within. Jessica Lahey summarizes the current research on motivation, rewards, praise, failure, and grit, and explains how parents and educators can help students get the support and encouragement they need in order to succeed over the long term.
