The ability to plan, problem solve, and regulate behaviour are key to student success in the school environment. When students struggle in these areas it is often frustrating for teachers to plan, meet curricular goals, and structure their classrooms for more creative, innovative, and independent learning. This session will explore strategies that aim to develop student's abilities to adapt to adversity and thrive. A combination of creative problem solving activities, building supportive relationships, and getting in touch with nature will be discussed as ways to enhance our daily classroom practice to build greater resilience in our students.
