Education circles have become obsessed with teaching kids resilience, but how do you actually do that? Maya Angelou tells ASCD that the best way is for teachers "to be sure that this is the program—this is the job—that he or she is called to do. Don't just teach because that's all you can do. Teach because it's your calling. And once you realize that, you have a responsibility to the young people. And it's not a responsibility to teach them by rote and by threat and even by promise."
