About the Author

Steven Goodman is founding executive director of Educational Video Center (EVC), a nonprofit youth media organization in New York City dedicated to teaching documentary video as a means to develop the artistic, critical literacy, and career skills of young people. He is the author of Teaching Youth Media: A Critical Guide to Literacy, Video Production, and Social Change.


"Informative, insightful, thoughtful and thought-provoking, It's Not About Grit is very highly recommended as an addition to school district in-service teacher training curriculums, as well as college and university Teacher Education instructional reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists. --Wisconsin Bookwatch

From a teacher education point of view, this book is a valuable resource for courses...This book makes important connections for educators, spelling out why it's not accurate to focus solely on the inner resources of low-income students, and describing the history of systemic societal problems that influence this population's educational experiences, such as housing and immigration policy. The documentary clips that are provided as links throughout the book will help these issues come alive in the classroom, and the guide that is included at the end of the book will support productive conversations. -- Teachers College Record

"Goodman evokes a strong sense of empathy in the reader...Thorough and well-researched chapters are accompanied by powerful video clips and anecdotes from Goodman's own students at the EVC. Goodman, from a place of vigor and empathy, advocates for open discussion between students and teachers, inquiry and community-based learning, and more frank acknowledgment of the societal barriers marginalized students face." --Journal of Social Studies Research
