In an educational setting, coping strategies refer to the way in which learners predict, prepare, perceive, manage, react and alter their behaviour when stressed. This stress is often caused by failure, the threat of failure or the belief that failure is inevitable. The reactions to these threats are both conscious and sub-conscious; we cannot fully control our behaviour in every respect. Learning is more difficult when students lack the necessary strategies to manage stress and anxiety. As teachers want to make learning as easy as possible, it is logical that coping strategies should be explicitly taught. All students from early childhood and kindergarten through middle and primary school and onto high school can benefit from this resource, and special needs or neurodiverse students can gain some excellent self-regulation skills from using these posters. Use this resource to practice and embed coping strategies with your students. The posters can be displayed in a calming corner or on the desks of individuals who struggle to self-regulate or can be accessible for when students need to access them at times of high stress or anxiety. The black and white posters can even be used as a calming strategy, by allowing the student to color in the strategies as they use them.
