By Patricia Zorio
Research indicates that XXI century educators must work to teach learners how to alleviate and manage stress, understand their emotions and develop a growth mindset. We should also prioritize creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking and innovation. In addition, telling students about grit and resilience will certainly help them overcome difficult times, learn deeply, avoid negative behaviour and achieve successful outcomes with long-term effects.
In this online workshop, we will be examining the implications of teaching students about grit, resilience and a growth mindset and how we teachers can incorporate emotional education strategies into academic time. We will include suggested activities, exercises and plenty of discussion on HOW to foster a positive attitude in class.
