strategies to develop student resilience

What is resilience? It comes from the Latin resilire, “to bounce back”. Resilience refers to the capacity to return to good mental health after challenging and difficult situations. It is not one specific thing, but a combination of skills and attributes that help to solve problems, cope with challenges, adapt and bounce back when things don´t go as planned. Resilient people learn from their mistakes, they look at their failures and mistakes as lessons to be learned from, and as opportunities for growth.

I think that I'm resilient enough myself!

A "Reverse Brainstorming" exercise! In Reverse Brainstorming we will answer the opposite question of what we actually want to achieve. This triggers some unusual thinking and brings a new perspective on the problem. So while we ultimately want to be able to build confidence and independence in our students,  in this Padlet, we identify how we as teachers can weaken our student's confidence and independence.
