Pilot a NEW Resiliency Curriculum Program by the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum

Girl Scouts across Colorado are invited to pilot the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum’s new Resiliency Curriculum Program. The program is called, “Becoming Your Personal Best.” Click here to get started. Next, choose to pilot one or more curriculum module for students in grades 4-12, focusing on the following resiliency skills: self-identity, perseverance, mindset, relationships, problem solving, and/or confidence. Video components highlighting the life experiences of an Olympic or Paralympic role model are included with each resiliency skill. When the module has been completed, pilot participants should complete a survey about their reactions and feedback. Modules have been designed for maximum flexibility. Accelerated lessons will take 15-20 minutes and each full-lesson will take 45-60 minutes.

Now more than ever, students and teachers alike need resiliency in their lives. The newly opened United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs invites educators and students to provide critical feedback on a brand new, research-based resiliency curriculum curated by classroom teachers, resiliency experts, and informal education institutions. Before offering this free curriculum to all Colorado schools and after-school programs in fall 2021, the museum needs people to pilot one or more curriculum modules throughout the spring to ensure each activity achieves the exceptional desired learning outcomes we are striving to reach.
