Be Resilient: Motivation for All
Have you ever felt like you wanted to quit or not complete a task when it became difficult? I have but I also learned that life goes on with or without you. Most humans do not want to be left behind or alone. So, before you regret your actions like me, let’s talk about being resilient!
Be Resilient: Motivation for All can be modified for all ages at various developmental stages to provide an inclusive experience. The program includes specific vocabulary outlined in the provided electronic worksheet that will be infused throughout the collaborative learning session.
The objective is to encourage participants to reflect on how they show resiliency in various situations by using the story of Resilient Lil’ Mac as the focal point of discussion. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to respond to a scenario that encourages them to think about their perception of what it means to be resilient and share their thoughts. At the end of the session, we will review materials and reflect on next steps to becoming a more resilient individual.
