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.
