The Coping Posters Teaching Resource

The Coping Posters Teaching Resource allows teachers to use The Coping Kete to encourage their students to explore helpful ways of coping with stress and distress while they learn the static image component of the Year 9 English Curriculum. This resource was created in collaboration with Ilana Hill, a NZ secondary school teacher with a passion for suicide prevention. If you’d like to see your class doing something like this, take a copy along to your teacher and let them know it’s here!
