Additional Book Details

There’s more to student success than standards and test scores…


The modern view of student achievement focuses on high test scores, higher standards, and racing to the top. Thrive skills fit with new ESSA requirements to go beyond basic academic measurements in order to equip students for lifelong success.


Debbie Silver and Dedra Stafford present a practical handbook that guides teachers and parents in fostering learners who are socially and emotionally healthy and prepared to undertake future challenges.  Through practical examples, precise strategies, and specific tools this book demonstrates how to empower learners in areas that include:

Using mindfulness strategies to help students tap their inner strengths


Learning to self-regulate and control other executive brain functions


Developing growth mindsets along with perseverance and resilience


Cultivating a sense of responsibility, honesty, and integrity


Encouraging a capacity for empathy and gratitude

Grounded in decades of psychological research, Teaching Kids to Thrive merges academic, social, and self-skills to stimulate personal and school achievement.
