The capability to attempt, fail then try is a significant one for our students to master but can not be easy to instil, with many students lacking the abilities to react to failure positively or preferring the instant gratification of first time success and proactively. As a way to help pupils of any age develop their academic resilience, we are able to support them in acquiring four skills: communicating, problem solving, autonomy and self-motivation.
Communication Developing-resilience via resilience training in schools
Good communication skills are especially significant, and critical for all students in regards to help seeking. Having where we’ve failed to realize the skills along with the confidence to frame our issues and ask for support means that we are more likely to see failure as something which will be readily beat rather than an insurmountable barrier.
Students with good problem solving skills regularly see tough theories as a challenge to be overcome; they have the means to attempt to overcome such challenges and often relish the chance to be academically stretched in this manner via resilience programs.
The pupil who has great problem solving abilities will soon be academically resilient than their peers. Where these abilities expand to embracing and overwhelming challenges unaided or with little help, students are somewhat more resistant still. Autonomous learners that have the confidence and means to handle questions alone will frequently take the opportunity to extend learning much beyond the classroom and develop a real love of studying which pervades almost everything they do.
Eventually, pupils who can move themselves by building resilience in students, instead of needing to rely on teacher directed action or extrinsic rewards, become more flexible learners.
Having an understanding of the fundamental features of resilient students can help to educate the way we approach many tasks within our day to day classroom training.
