Write a three-page describing someone you know (NOT yourself and NOT a celebrity) who exhibits the characteristics of a gritty person.
Include these sections in your paper–add the headings in bold and write in a narrative style (no bullet points).
1. Introductory Comments
Introduce the person (at least 3 complete sentences – about a quarter of a page):
What is the person’s relationship to you (how do you know her/him or know of her/him)?
What is the person’s career/hobby that makes you consider him/her gritty (sports, music, business, etc)?
2. Gritty Characteristics
Tell a story of the person’s life and how they increased their grit across time (at least 6 complete sentences – up to about half a page).
3. Key Terms/Major Point about Grit
Using the Grit TED Talk and the article you read (Grit: Perseverance and Passion of Long-Term Goals) as reference, describe how the person’s life characterizes the key terms/major points. Include at least 6 terms, such as deliberate practice, and indicate them by putting them in bold. Make sure I know that you know what grit is (at least 6 complete sentences – up to about half a page).
4. Application of Grit
Apply the concept of grit to your own lifespan development (at least 6 complete sentences – at least half a page). This is the most important part of your paper:
What was your score on the Grit Scale?
What did you learn about yourself from the Grit Scale?
What did you learn about yourself from the Grit TED Talk and the article you read (Grit: Perseverance and Passion of Long-Term Goals)?
How might you incorporate the knowledge into your own life (i.e., so what are you going to do about your increased knowledge of grit)
5. Pay It Forward
Conclude your paper with how you plan to share what you learned about Grit with others (at least 3 sentences – about a quarter of a page):
Who will talk to about Grit?
Why did you choose that person?
What will you tell her/him?
