Resilience, Research, and Educational Reform is the title of a useful article by Sara Truebridge.

Here’s an excerpt:

Resilience research in education specifically recognizes three protective factors that, when present in an educational environment, mitigate risk and enhance positive educational climates that promote student engagement, motivation, and self-efficacy, which in turn increase student success. These three protective factors are: (1) fostering caring relationships, (2) conveying high expectations, and (3) promoting opportunities for meaningful participation.

She goes on to suggest ways to implement these in the classroom.
