By Bill Lucas and Ellen Spencer (Crown House Publishing, £16.99)


Part of the Pedagogy for a Changing World series, this is a powerful call to action and a practical handbook for all teachers who want to stimulate and strengthen their pupils’ learning tenacity. Developing Tenacity delves beyond the ‘grit’ and ‘growth mindset’. It draws on the co-authors’ research to offer a powerful synthesis of what it takes for learners to persevere when confronted with challenges. The wealth of teaching and learning methods presented is accompanied by practical suggestions on how to embed tenacity more systematically into the curriculum.
