Mrs. Graves Favorite TED Talks:

Grit TED Talk:

I love this TED Talk because our childrens' success does not have to be defined by their IQ, test scores, or income level, rather we can encouraged by developing their resiliency to "try, try, again! This TED talk shares how developing "grit" may be a key to success for our children:

 Quiet TED Talk:

"In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult to be an introvert....Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated." As an introvert who has learned over my 50 plus years in our culture how to be an extrovert, I love this TED talk for all those parents with "quiet" children!

Mindset TED Talk:

 Key to achieving our success may be found adding the simple word "yet" into our vocabulary and encouraging a "growth mindset" our children.
