Resilience: A ReMix of “Bent But Not Broken”
Created with Haiku Deck, the free presentation app
Resilience. For yourself. For your students.
She says, ” We need to see students as they should be and help them to see what they are capable of becoming. We can help them in becoming more resilient by being that role model for them.”
It’s not easy, especially if you teach middle school, because they do know everything already. But we see their hearts, their unseen acts of kindness, and their ability to look to each other for support. We think our “role modeling” is for naught at the time, but through the course of the year with them, you’ll hear them remind you, “But you said…” as they repeat your self-talk modeling when you, the teacher, need it. They hear. So be a role model for resilience.
Here are more resources from Susan:
- authors Viktor Frankl , who wrote Mans Search for Meaning
- Haiku Deck on Coping Skills
- Livebinder on resiliency
- And this video:
Resilience is hope, and something I’ve been thinking of for a while — how do I help students cope and learn, to be resilient in the face of so many obstacles. I am even adapting a BIE project on resilience that I call I Stand Eight, which I hope to implement next fall.
Thanks, Susan for adding to the conversation on helping students live learning.
