BOUNCE BACK! Classroom Resiliency Program

McGrath & Noble, 2003

Bounce Back! External Link is a classroom resiliency program written by Dr Helen McGrath and Dr Toni Noble. It is a collection of practical classroom strategies to help young people cope with the complexity of their everyday lives and learn to 'bounce back' when they experience sadness, difficulties, frustrations and hard times.

The program teaches the personal skills of resilience through the key learning areas. There is a special emphasis on Literacy, Science and Technology and Social Studies. The parent program shows parents how to reinforce the teaching of the same skills at home.

This table should be used in conjunction with the Years 1 to 9 Health and Physical Education Essential Learnings and the Scoping the Essentials Years 1 to 9. It is to be used as a guide only.
