Teaching kids to thrive

by Debbie Thompson Silver | 28 June 2017
Synopsis
Teaching Kids to Thrive explores the key elements of learning that go far beyond subject matter knowledge and academic skill measurement. The book covers what it takes to help students --all students-- move beyond merely coping and surviving. The authors aim to teach students how to thrive and how to navigate successfully whatever the future holds for them. The authors explore teaching social-emotional learning (SEL) skills as dispositions toward lifelong success. After reading this book, teachers will be more able to: Use mindfulness strategies to help students focus and access their inner strengths. Help students build upon their existing ability to self-regulate and motivate themselves. Guide students in developing their growth mindsets so they can visualize their goals and make plans to achieve them. Cultivate an attitude and culture of perseverance in the classroom. Incorporate resilience practices into everyday lesson planning and interactions. Clarify what it means to be a responsible community member and help students internalize how they can be responsible students and citizens. Demonstrate how honesty and integrity can help build stronger relationships and foster a community of people who support one another. Rethink their capacity for empathy and employ new tools and techniques for expressing empathy to students and colleagues. Formulate an ethos of everyday gratitude so that students, regardless of their socioeconomic status, learn to honor the gifts they have and appreciate the pluses in their lives. Use the strategies, tips, guidelines, stories, reflections, and inspiration from this book to ensure that students excel not only in their academic skills, but also in their Thrive skills, which lay the foundation for a healthy, whole, centered, and grounded young adulthood.
