What makes someone resilient? Are you born that way or can you learn skills to become more resilient? This course is designed with the K-12 educator in mind and will examine how to become more resilient. The course will look at present day people who exhibit resiliency even in the toughest circumstances. Students will explore the ideas why one person who seemingly has it all can’t find ways to cope vs. those who come from nothing and are triumphant. Students will also make connections between true happiness and resiliency. Students will be given tools to use in their classrooms promoting more resilient children and in turn more successful and happier students.
