Love this line Will, “resilience is, and always will supersede the other Rs because it transcends the classroom.” Students learn everywhere and need to be able to work through challenges. But also our students face personal life challenges, and so our work on resilience needs to encompass that need. I want my students to be able to transfer their resilience to all aspects of their lives.
I have chosen resilience and patience as my word of the year in the past. I appreciate your thoughts on silence. Every year the amount I speak in class drops, and when I talk it is often one-to-one or in small groups. I need to blog about this shift in my practice. Thanks for prompting me. :)
Happy New Year!
