We are teachers: “How to help children build resilience.”

This is a great article with plenty of practical applications. Each of the eight suggestions come with an introduction and a brief description of ‘what you can do’ to apply the approach in the real world.

The stand out for me is capture the opportunity: this one has a double application, where the teacher both praises and supports creativity, while at the same time encouraging students to recognise and learn from their mistakes.

In the moment …

  1. Keep perspective.
  2. Capture the opportunity.
  3. Cool down.

Long term planning …

  1. Create connection.
  2. Build competence.
  3. Give them options.
  4. Connect with characters. 
  5. Encourage constant progress.
