Fostering Resiliency: Expecting All Students To Use Their Minds and Hearts Well.
Krovetz, Martin L.
Schools that trust their students, and schools that value, respect, and know their students are schools that foster resiliency for their students. More than any other single factor, the lack of a deeply held belief in every child's ability leads to underachieving students. Seven schools that are working to remove roadblocks to student success are described as examples of the process of becoming a school which fosters resiliency. Chapters are: (1) "What Is This Resiliency Stuff?" (Anzar High School); (2) "Becoming a Resilient School Community: First Things First" (Rosemary School); (3) "What's In It for Me?" (Cesar Chavez School); (4) "I Care, You Care, We All Care: But How Do Students Know That?" (Moss Landing Middle School);"Providing High Expectations and Purposeful Support" (Stipe School); (6) "Valuing Meaningful Student Participation" (Homestead High School); (7) "Managing Change: On Your Mark, Get Set, Are You Ready to Go?" (Mission Hill Junior High School); (8) "Commonly Asked Questions about Resiliency (And the Answers)." Resources appended include: (1) "Observation Checklist"; (2) "Assessing School Resiliency Building"; (3) "Moving from Risk to Resiliency in Our Schools"; (4) "Cupertino Union School District, Junior High Assessment. Standard 1: Student/School Connectedness"; (5) "Questions for Reflection." (Contains 44 references.) (EMK)
