Forget the Oscars — the Greater Goodies honor Ten Films that Highlight the Growth Mindset, Resilience, Purpose and more

___

Everyone’s talk­ing about yesterday’s Acad­e­my Awards—and so we thought we’d give out our own ver­sion of the Oscars, the Greater Good­ies.

Where­as the Acad­e­my of Motion Pic­ture Arts and Sci­ences rec­og­nizes achieve­ments in act­ing, direct­ing, edit­ing, and so on, the Greater Good staff picked our win­ners for their abil­i­ty to illus­trate spe­cif­ic keys to human well-being, such as growth mind­set, resiliencepur­pose, and for­give­ness.

Some of the movies are action-filled block­busters, like Won­der Woman or Star Wars: The Last Jedi; oth­ers are qui­et inde­pen­dent films like The Flori­da Project and Lady Bird. We hope the Greater Good­ies help you see all of these films in a new light—and per­haps you can apply their insights to your own life.  Read the rest of this entry »

But teacher stress is not only a prob­lem for teach­ers; it can also be a prob­lem for stu­dents. Read the rest of this entry »
