Grit & Bear It! Bundle
Use these two books hand-in-hand to help young people push past adversity and stay on the path to success. Executive function skills such as planning, perseverance, and risk-taking are promoted through the inspirational illustrations and straight-forward text in the book and the engaging activities in the teacher’s guide. Teachers implementing the Boys Town Education Model will find these tools a great way to embed the teaching of social skills in middle and high school academic lessons. Each of the 25 lessons ties an essential executive function skill such as self-control to a Boys Town social skill such as focusing on a task.
The lessons for grades 5-10 are active, hands-on and technology-based. Students practice positive behaviors while discovering just how hard they can work, often using smart phones and tablets during class or with flipped classroom assignments. Individual books can be purchased separately. Buying the bundle saves $5.00!
