Special Two-Part USN and RSN Teachers Teaching Teachers Webcast

Resiliency: What We are Learning from Our Students

June 3, 2009

Host site: New York City Writing Project

You are invited to listen and interact with teachers across the globe during a special two-part Teachers Teaching Teachers webcast, titled "Resiliency: What We are Learning from Our Students," sponsored by the Urban Sites Network and Rural Sites Network.

Resiliency theories have been shared for over a decade. Members of the NWP's Urban and Rural Sites Networks, who have been discussing the implications of resiliency research for classroom practice, will share what teachers see and do when stakes are high, supports are limited, and odds are tough—and kids rise above it all.

Bonnie Benard, keynote speaker at the 2009 Urban Sites Network Conference, explores this topic in her book Resiliency: What We Have Learned , which helps to frame this discussion.

Join us to tell a story from your classroom about resiliency and what you have learned.
