HERO Generation is a positive education framework that supports both staff and student well-being. Built upon Plasticity’s HERO Traits (Hope, Efficacy, Resilience, Optimism), HERO Generation provides educators with tools to build a positive school culture where students can flourish.

How it Works

HERO Generation™ schools infuse these social-emotional traits into the fabric of the school culture.

The framework is unique to each school and can be incorporated into existing school-wide initiatives and classroom activities. Classroom learning using existing curriculum is built using the lens of HERO Traits™.

Activities range from setting personal / group goals, identifying core values, to celebrations of uniqueness and positive social media presence. Using the framework, a common language and understanding develop between staff, students and families as the traits are defined and put into practice.

Families support social-emotional learning at home and receive regular communication from the school through emails, social media, school websites and attending school activities. Students not only learn the evidenced-based theory of each trait, but they put these skills into action at school and home every day.
