Product description


Expertise, professionalism, eloquence, grit, spark and craftsmanship taken together are the hallmarks of tenacity in action at School 21. In 'Developing Tenacity' Bill Lucas and Ellen Spencer give us the underpinning research as well as practical strategies for any school to develop tenacious students who also produce beautiful work.

--Peter Hyman, Head Teacher, School 21

Students psychological experience of learning and school is an important factor in their academic success. 'Developing Tenacity' offers an array of practical ideas for edu­cators on how to create environments that nurture the natural curiosity and drive to learn with which people are born.

--Lisa Quay, Executive Director, Mindset Scholars Network

Bill Lucas and Ellen Spencer's 'Developing Tenacity' is a joy to read above all because it argues for both the rigour of disciplinary knowledge and a robust approach to the development of character. Also a pleasure to see is its combination of scholar­ship with practical application, just the kind of thing that schools will find useful.

--Julian Astle, Director of Creative Learning and Development, RSA
