This presentation focuses on developing academic resilience for the youth at risk. We begin by emphasizing the need for these skills and the research supporting this assertion. Participants are given strategies on sharing productive feedback while building academic resilience with their students. Motivating children from lower socio-economic communities is critical as these children are adversely affected by a complex set of risk factors involving academic achievement, leadership skills, and social/emotional skills. This presentation seeks to encourage a positive dialogue between presenter & conference attendees in understanding how academic resilience, intrinsic motivation, & emotional intelligence can positively affect a student in many areas of his life including emotional, psychological, & intellectual domains. Recognizing the strong nature of evidence that support these concepts will strengthen the educator's resolve to keep the notion of developing academic resilience, intrinsic motivation, & emotional intelligence as yearlong objectives for students. This presentation considers the vast amount of research on intrinsic motivation, emotional intelligence, & academic resilience as the presenter seeks to demonstrate & discuss with the participants the necessity of emphasizing these skills with the student at risk.
