Grit and Growth

This week, you viewed two video lectures (the “source material”). The first video was Dr. Angela Duckworth explaining her concept of “grit” and the second video was Dr. Carol Dweck explaining her concept of “growth mindset”.

Your assignment is to:

Summarize the Duckworth “Grit” video

Summarize the Dweck “Growth” video

Write a comparison in your own words of how these concepts relate to each other.

Please write a paragraph for each bullet above and use complete sentences. The total length of this assignment is 750 words (double-spaced, using 12 pt. Times New Roman).

When it comes down to creating documents, I use word for everything. Microsoft office is my best friend. I do a lot of things for my job along with a lot of things for my church so therefore Microsoft office have everything that I need to make sure I am able to complete the things that I need to complete to be successful.
