We Can’t Lose Another Student
School violence is a tragic reminder that connection and a sense of belonging are critical focal points in our schools today. To establish this essential need, we need to teach social/emotional skills – such as teamwork, problem solving, leadership, and resiliency – with the same commitment as reading, writing and math.
In addition, we are all healing from recent events and times like this are when we most need to rely on each other for support but also on our own resilience. Students with stronger resiliency skills will heal faster and cope with tragedy better. Students with stronger resiliency skills will be less likely to be targets of bullying and less likely to feel ostracized from their peers. Teaching responsibility to others, compassion and diversity should be integrated on a daily basis or else our schools—and society—will continue to produce students who feel disconnected and alienated.
To help you, we’re offering our lessons in resiliency free of charge.
When students have strong resiliency skills…
- They can better cope with tragedy and adversity
- They let things roll off their back and solve conflicts appropriately
- They are more likely to have better connections to their peers
