How Educators Can Help Their Students Build The Skills Of Hope by sherifastro: 02:57 am On 9 Sep
How educators can help their students build the skills of hope,

Here are five guidelines on How educators can help their students build the skills of hope

1) Identifying and prioritize their top goals

Talk to your students to create a "big picture" list of what's important to them such as their academics, friends, family, sports, or career and then have them reflect on which areas are most important to them and how satisfied they are with each.

Have it in mind that those goals must be what the students want, not what their parents, teachers or schools want.

Otherwise, as studies suggest, they will quickly lose their interest and/or motivation, especially as they come up against obstacles.

Next, using this list, teach students how to create goals that are both specific and take a positive, solutions, oriented approach.

Their goals need to focus on accomplishing something in the future rather than avoiding something.

For instance, ``I want to play on the Handball team`` is a more effective, motivating goal than ``I will stop drinking vodka.``

Finally, students should rank their goals in order of importance.

Researchers have found that this is particularly vital for students with little hope, as they often attempt any goal that comes to mind, which distracts their focus and energy from the goals that can have the greatest impact on their overall well being.

2) Breaking down the long-term goals into steps.
