Many of our students lack resilience and are unable to persevere when things get difficult or recover from setbacks. The fear of failure is often what impacts student performance beyond just raising their hand or taking tests and also affects how they perceive themselves, work with others, and problem solve obstacles. With the high percentage of students affected by trauma, or the increase of anxiety in the classroom, youth just aren't taking risks like they used to.
This course will delve into what the research says about resilience and 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. The structure of these activities align with CASEL core competency areas, can be easily applied to content related classes, and the skills transferred to various settings.
Come ready to move, play, and take home group activities that you can implement in your classroom tomorrow.
