If your effort to improve student achievement is challenged by adverse factors outside the classroom, then here’s a resource that will help you nurture students' natural resiliency and help your learning community respond effectively with a positive program. Use the video scenes and workshop outlines in this DVD to
Use Program 1, Understanding the Role of Resiliency, to explain the strong link between achievement and resiliency. Program 2, Building Resiliency in the Classroom, reveals the teaching strategies and classroom practices that boost achievement by fostering resiliency in students.
