Student Well-Being

Summary

Throughout the Student Well-Being module we have learned about seven key elements that contribute to student well-being:

  • Sense of Belonging

  • Sense of Control

  • Feeling of Self-Worth

  • Relationships with Peers

  • Personal Attachments

  • Intellectual Stimulation

  • Sense of Safety

We have also taken time to look at potential actions teachers can take to positively influence and strengthen student well-being.  At this time you may want to review the chart that you completed on the specific well-being needs of children in your context and potential interventions that could be supported or developed to respond to those needs.

Finally, we have established a common understanding of the six components that define a Healing Classroom:

  • A safe learning environment oriented to well-being and to active learning

  • Teaching and classroom management methods that promote well-being

  • Positive and supportive communication with children and youth

  • Emphasis on reaching all learners – diversified teaching and communication styles

  • Creative, sports and recreational activities

  • Active participation of children, youth and other community members in decision-making in school and in the community
