Module Overview

Originated by: Felicia Rivera Megret

Persistence is a personality trait. Persistence refers to perseverance in spite of fatigue or frustration. Research found that persistence, like other temperament traits, is highly heritable and is associated with conscientiousness.

Persistence can also be measured as the time invested in staying on task. As an example, if a postman works an 8-hour shift, their persistence is 8 hours.

This module looks at examples of positive and negative persistence and what positive results may result from practicing persistence.

We will explore

  • What is persistence?
  • Positive and negative persistence
  • What is the value of persistence?
  • How to develop the practise of persistence
  • Sharing ideas on positive persistence


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
