Our students are confronted with many challenging topics as they negotiate the ups and downs of the world. How can we best support them, build their capacity to navigate challenging topics, and craft strong relationships and lines of communication? Through a series of HUBs, or Help Us Begin mindsets and strategies, Jen Cort provides practical advice any educator or parent can employ toward this aim. HUBs are illustrated throughout the book with stories, tips, application methods, and activities parents and educators can do independently or together.
Praise for HUBs:
I loved this book so much I read it in one sitting. I got SO MUCH out of it! Jen Cort brings her extensive experience as a school counselor, school leader and consultant to the table, sharing memorable stories that bring her wise and practical strategies to life. Cort covers a broad range of topics, from helping kids self-regulate to encouraging them to stretch outside their comfort zones, to normalizing failure. She deftly ties together many different, yet interconnected threads to help educators and caregivers partner to turn out children who are self-aware, strong self-advocates, changemakers and activists. This is the book we all need to help children thrive in a complex and constantly changing world.
