"Students will be more likely to persevere when the learning environment has a fair and respectful climate, conveys high expectations, emphasizes effort over ability, and provides necessary tangible resources--materials, human, and time."
Quote is taken from the U.S. Department of Education report titled, Promoting
Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the
21st Century (2013, p. vii).
