Many of our students lack resiliency, unable to persevere when things get difficult or recover from setbacks. The fear of failure is real and with "helicopter" (or as I like to call it in the northeast, "snowplow") parenting styles becoming the norm, the high percentage of students affected by trauma, or the amount of anxious kids in the classroom, youth just aren't taking risks like they used to.
This course will offer environmental and instructional strategies to increase risk taking and perseverance.
Learn how to structure group activities that push students to collaborate, fail and recover, think out of the box, problem solve, reflect, and give and accept feedback.
Come ready to move, play, and take home group activities that you can implement in your classroom tomorrow.
