Listen as Wise Youth Discuss what Supports or Undermines Resiliency

Mar 14, 2019

Breakout Room #6

ABOUT:

A youth panel will discuss factors that are at the core of student resiliency and learning. Participants will (1) learn about factors that support or undermine youth engagement in school and the community and (2) learn about factors in school and the community that support or undermine youth resiliency in the face of challenges (3) experience how wise youth are, especially about these issues. We need to reshape our actions based on what they say. As time allows, participants will discuss in small groups amongst themselves how to implement the wisdom just shared by the youth panel.

Resiliency involves how one continues in the face of adversity. Local control accountability plans address academic data, as well as school climate concerns that include absenteeism, behavioral interventions, and designated student populations. The plans are expected to include input from key stakeholders. This workshop goes directly to the most numerous stakeholders, students, and asks them to address factors that support or undermine their resilience, within the context of academics, school climate, and cultural competency.

Audience:

All professional education roles, students, parents, school board members
