Welcome to this month’s edition of Educational Research: Five More Reads. In this series we take a look at some further reading on a specific topic, including open access research papers from various online databases, and Teacher Archive content you may not have come across yet.

In this edition of five more readings, We share five resources on student resilience. The first is this new analysis from the most recent Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) cycle in 2018, produced by Teacher Columnist Dr. Sue Thomson.

  1. PISA 2018: Australia in Focus # 1: Academic Resilience of Australian Students. This report sheds light on the academic resilience of Australian students and examines the relationship between academic resilience, student attitudes and dispositions, and growth mentality. “Academically resilient students are defined in this report as students who are socio-economically disadvantaged compared to other students in their country and who performed particularly well on the 2018 PISA reading assessment,” it says.
  2. Perceptions of belonging and experiences of belonging in the transition from elementary school to secondary school. This 2020 paper highlights some of the results of a longitudinal study that looks at the factors that contribute to educational resilience in transition from elementary to secondary school. The topic of belonging emerged from the interviews researchers conducted with 6th grade students. This post addresses this issue of belonging and discusses implications for practice.
  3. Bounce! A positive educational approach that promotes well-being, resilience and socio-emotional learning in the primary school years. In this article, educators and educational psychologists, Professor Toni Noble and Professor Helen McGrath, discuss the bounce back program they co-authored. The program is aimed at children of primary school age and aims to support teachers in promoting their resilience. In the article, they share the benefits of social and emotional learning (SEL) and strategies for teaching SEL.
  4. Coronavirus and the Class of 2020: How a Pandemic Turned 12 and Its Future on Its Heads. This report from Year13, an organization dedicated to helping students transition to after-school life, shares the results of a national survey conducted among more than 2,000 young people aged 16-18 over the COVID-19 pandemic. The results show that 67 percent of students say distance learning has worsened their academic performance, 70 percent say their plans changed after school, and 80 percent fear it will be more difficult to find a job. Almost four in five (79 percent) say their mental health has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  5. Resilience teaching resources. ReachOut, an online mental health service for young people in Australia, has developed a range of classroom teaching materials. One resource is on recovery and another is focused on understanding a solid and growth mindset, especially student understanding of failure.
