“This text is designed to help teachers develop and operate their classrooms so that they are maximally conducive to promoting the potential of all students. Of course, this has always been the ultimate goal of education, but the devil is always in the details. How does a teacher do this given the diversity of students’ cultural and social backgrounds, experiences, and entering abilities while at the same time being respectful and sensitive to each student’s needs, behaviors, and developmental readiness? Somehow, someway, many teachers have found a way to do this, and this book attempts to reveal how it can be done. Moreover, it offers proven strategies and tactics to do so as it relies on the combination of scientific research and sound educational practice.”

Joseph A. Durlak, emeritus professor of psychology, Loyola University Chicago

“At a time when there is a need for improved social and emotional learning, better connections with students, and flexible strategies for supporting behavior, the authors of Bolstering Student Resilience have created a very exciting and practical approach to help teachers and principals provide everything students need to build skills, be resilient, and realize their best academic performance.”

Chad Allman, principal, Tomball Junior High School, Texas
