Resiliency for the 21st Century
Resiliency is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. As we continue to prepare our students for 21st century challenges, it's important to find the balance of enhancing academic skills with strong mental and emotional behaviors. While establishing the solid foundation in the application of English and Mathematics standards we also need to ensure that we are teaching problem solving, self management, and adaptability to change.
Resiliency training is also part of the curriculum for TIGER Leadership Camp (TLC.) TLC is a summer camp program designed for all ages that teaches leadership skills through outdoor and physical activities. Campers can practice problem solving skills by leading groups through challenges designed to strengthen critical thinking and cooperation skills.
