How do we teach children to enjoy learning and really love school? How do we engage children in the learning process so that they do well in school, graduate high school and be college and career ready? How do we as educators instill good self-esteem in our students? What kind of world would we have if we raised our children to believe in themselves as learners and really like themselves?
The answer to these questions is actually quite simple: we teach our students to be resilient and have a growth mindset. We provide them with kid-friendly strategies for success, proven by decades of research, allowing them to take ownership in their own learning and feel pride in their accomplishments. Excitement about learning turns on the good neurotransmitters in the brain giving pride in learning. Challenging oneself through effort and problem solving after failure increases the neural networks in the brain and makes the children smarter.
Positive psychological principles that create a happy life can be taught to students of any age.There are many well-researched coping skills associated with resilience and life-long satisfaction. Teachers need concrete resources to help their students succeed.
