Resilience and Inclusion Lessons and Activities provide secondary students with critical resilience strategies to address personal adversity (like injuries and mistakes) and societal challenges (like lack of equity and inclusion).
To be resilient, we must manage our stress. Stress management helps us overcome challenges and adversity and pursue our individual and team goals.
Students will learn how to support their mental health by:
Learning from mistakes and failures, overcoming obstacles, and moving beyond challenges can separate successful individuals from those who don’t achieve their full potential.
Students will learn how to identify what is and is not within their control. Additionally, students will identify how to learn from their experiences and use that knowledge to improve.
Inclusive cultures are resilient cultures because there is strength in unity and togetherness.
Inclusion is reflected in behaviors that welcome and embrace diversity and ensues when compassion, courage, and a sense of community are intentionally pursued through communication.
Students will define what inclusion looks like in their life (as part of a team, classroom, or at school) and learn strategies to:
CASEL Core Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Competency Alignment: Self-Awareness
Resilient individuals are able to overcome errors, make difficult decisions, and take ownership of their actions, regardless of the outcome.
Students will learn how to make good decisions, reflect on past choices, and acknowledge when a mistake is made.
Resilience and inclusion lessons work especially well in athletics and other extra-curricular activities. Two-hour and half-day professional development workshops focused on integrating our athletic programming, Pursuing Victory With Honor, are available.
To maximize your utilization of any curricular resource from CHARACTER COUNTS!, we provide online and in-person professional development sessions to help you navigate all the features, and determine how to adapt the materials to best meet the needs of your organization.
