Primary School Teachers' Ability to Recognise Resilience in their Students
Russo, Rebecca; Boman, Peter
Australian Educational Researcher, v34 n1 p17-32 Apr 2007
This study investigated teachers' knowledge of, and capacity to identify resilience, in 92 primary school children in Far North Queensland. It was found that although teachers' knowledge of resilience was apparently strong, and they reported a significant level of confidence in their ability to assist children in building resilience, their capacity to identify levels of resilience in their students was lacking. The paper concludes with suggestions for future research. (Contains 3 tables.)
