Teaching Tenacity, Resilience, and a Drive for Excellence
Lessons for Social-Emotional Learning for Grades 4-8
How can we help students develop resilience to persevere in the face of setbacks? How can we ignite a drive that will inspire them to sustain effort even through difficulty? This book equips teachers to deliberately cultivate psychosocial skills, including self-awareness, problem-solving to deal with setbacks, assertive interpersonal skills and intellectual risk-taking.
By teaching students to be aware of how their thoughts, emotions and behaviours affect their pursuit of excellence, students can learn to tackle challenges and setbacks that they might experience as they reach to achieve. Lessons include engaging activities and curriculum connections, covering topics related to perfectionism, mindset, grit, stress, procrastination, social–emotional intelligence and more.
