Part two: Self-Esteem, Resilience, and Motivation
With these three thoughts in mind, follow the instructions below to post your response to this Discussion topic.
Post an explanation of how you view the link between building self-esteem, resilience, and motivation in school-age children and adolescents. Then describe what place you think building self-esteem and resilience should take in a setting of your choice, explaining why. Finally, describe at least two challenges that professionals in this setting might encounter when trying to address self-esteem and resilience issues and provide at least one possible solution that could be used in response. Be sure to cite information from the Learning Resources to support your thinking.
Part three: Circle of Courage
As you learned this week, the Circle of Courage is a model for positive youth development based on Native American philosophy. According to the model, children and adolescents have four basic needs—belongingness, mastery, independence, and generosity. By helping young people meet these needs, parents and professionals in turn facilitate the development of children and adolescents into resilient, caring, self-motivated individuals. In this assignment, you will analyze a successful youth project or program to see if and how the Circle of Courage needs were met.
Find an example of a successful school project or other youth program in which children and/or adolescents have displayed motivation to learn or to complete a task. Examples might include a fund-raising drive, a peer tutoring program, a science fair, a service project, an academic competition, etc. This can be a project or program in which you personally participated, that you observed in your community, that you heard about from a friend or colleague, that you read about in a newspaper or magazine, or something of interest that you find through research.
Write a brief summary or profile of the project or program that you have chosen. Then analyze the project or program in terms of the four components of the Circle of Courage. Consider the following:
Write a 2- to 3-page analysis based on the answers to these questions. Assignment length: 2–3 pages
