Difficult and trying times can define the trajectory of a generation. The COVID-19 pandemic and current civil unrest present unique opportunities. While many people feel discouraged, students can choose to thrive.


In this important lesson, you will lead your students through reflection, challenges, and exhortation. The goal is for them to process, define, and express their personal experience and find a “silver lining”. As a result, they can embrace valuable life lessons for the future.


Thriving in Trying Times works well with middle school students OR high school students. Regardless of age, students can learn to apply key principles to other life-changing events that they need to process.
