*Angela Lee Duckworth: Grit

This is good for students because it advocates for a new perspective on failure. This is especially good for first year students, especially those that did well in high school, because they tend to shut down when the first thing goes wrong in a semester. 

*Margaret Heffernan: Dare to disagree

This video really speaks about critical thinking and questioning what we think we know. Students should know how to think critically and how to describe what it means to think critically and this video explains that concept.
