Grit with Angela Duckworth

In July 2017, I was invited to be a guest speaker at Educator Summit 2017, an education-centered conference in Philadelphia run by UPenn Professor Angela Duckworth. I went with my longtime teacher and friend Anthony Yom.

I was on a panel with FSU Professor Anders Ericsson, whose research interests are deliberate practice and expertise. My class’ performance on the AP Calculus test was a good example of how deliberate practice leads to expertise.
