Edutopia has compiled a collection of videos, interviews, and articles that focus on fostering and building resistance and grit in students.  Although the focus is on younger children, the resources here would be valuable for pursuing “resilience” as a possible First Year Experience (FYE) theme. The resources are divided into six different themes, which include; nurturing resilience, fostering grit, teaching growth mindset, managing stress, learning from failure, and responding to trauma and tragedy.
