Transformative Teachers: Fostering Resilience & Ethical Leadership

At the beginning of Teacher Appreciation Week, we want to share Transformative Teachers, a collection of videos and lesson plans available on PBS LearningMedia™.  The collection is designed to equip educators with tools and methods for fostering resilience and ethical leadership skills among young people. The resources are accompanied by support materials for teachers, and the lesson plans are aligned to national college and career readiness standards.

As you develop and adapt the methods shown in the videos, you may want to team up with a group of teachers across a range of subject areas, as well as guidance counselors and health educators. You may even know students, parents, or community leaders who would be interested in the collection of videos and activities.

You’ll find worthy subjects such as Cultivating Empathy, Cultivating Self-Acceptance, and Gratitude and the Environment to help students (and you) to become more resilient and ethical.

Transformative Teachers is produced through a collaboration among The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values and WGBH Educational Foundation. Funding for this project is provided by The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT.
