Lesson Plans from the "Creating a Supportive Environment for Wai'anae's Children & Youth" Summer Institute. July 14-18, 1997.
Hawaii Univ., Manoa. Coll. of Education.
This summer institute was specifically designed to give the Wai'anae community in Hawaii a chance to share ideas that would strengthen the support for all of their youth. It also gave them a chance to learn about resiliency, which is defined as "a person's capacity to survive through life's difficulties." Resiliency can be fostered in youth by building protective factors into classrooms, families, and the community. These protective factors were included in lesson plans created by teachers, administrators, counselors, school personnel, parents, and community members of Wai'anae who participated in the institute. Fifteen of these factors were: (1) "Promotes close bonds"; (2) "Values and encourages education"; (3) "Uses high warmth/low criticism style of interaction"; (4) "Sets and enforces clear boundaries"; (5) "Encourages supportive relationships with many things"; (6) "Promotes sharing of responsibilities and services to others"; (7) "Expresses high and realistic expectations for success"; (8) "Encourages goal-setting and mastery"; (9) "Encourages pro-social development of values and life skills"; (10) "Provides leadership, decision-making, and other opportunities for meaningful participation"; (11) "Appreciates the unique talents of each individual"; (12) "Provides access to resources for meeting basic needs"; (13) "Fosters active involvement for all students"; (14) "Self-Worth, autonomy, self-esteem, self- self-awareness"; (15) "Spirituality." This work is indexed by protective factors only. (EMK)
