I Can't Do That Yet...Cultivating a Learning Disposition: Project Overview

Why Study Learning Dispositions?

Growing interest and research on the importance of “self-control, curiosity, optimism, gratitude, social intelligence, zest, and grit” as predictors of school achievement and other meaningful life outcomes have led some educators to think critically about opportunities to measure and teach these essential skills. The Phillips Academy community has begun to develop research, practice, and thinking around the role of these skills in the Andover curriculum.
