Yesterday I had the opportunity to present the resilience information and strategies to the Nittany Success Center tutors. This was a really good fit for this information. These wonderful students have the opportunity everyday as they work with struggling students to reinforce some of the important lessons about resilience. From identifying language cues that represent unproductive mindsets to strategies to help with test anxiety and other emotional impacts on learning, tutors received important information on the research behind resilience as well as practical strategies to use with tutees. Getting this information into the hands of students who help other students is a good way to multiply the outcomes! They are a great bunch of students! I was grateful for the opportunity.
