grittoteach

 

Ohio University Lancaster Campus faculty Paul Young, Terri Green, and Debra Dunning recently published a book called Grit to Teach and the Mindset to Stay: Do You Have What It Takes?: 50 Critical Questions to Ask Yourself. This book was developed and written to help high school and college-level aspiring educators discern and confirm their career choice to become teachers. It is a companion book to any introductory education class textbook and a stand-alone, must-read for aspiring teachers engaged in their student teaching experience or related seminars. The book’s purpose is to improve students’ deliberate practice of thinking and acting like a teacher. The authors lead readers through self-reflective exercises and activities to 50 questions in 10 chapters focusing on professional attitudes, mindset, habits, professionalism, initiative, reading and writing, public speaking, personal care, preparation, and personal responsibility.

 

 

Much of the book’s content has been used to support the growth and development of education majors at Ohio University Lancaster Campus. Additionally, Young is a retired principal, and a past president of the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the National After School Association. Green is a retired teacher, literacy specialist, and an advisor to the OU-L Student Education Association. Dunning is a specialist in collaboration, early childhood programming and leadership, kindergarten readiness, developmentally appropriate practice, diversity, and parenting education.
