Purpose: The present research was conducted with the aim of determining the effectiveness of thinking and lifestyle lessons on the academic resilience and creativity of secondary school (first) female students in Tehran's fourth education district.
Method: The research method is semi-experimental with two experimental and control groups, pre-test and post-test were conducted. The statistical population includes all 7th-grade female students of Tehran's Chahar district. According to the size of the population of one of the 7th-grade schools in Region Four, one school was determined as the statistical population in the current research. From the selected school, two 7th-grade classes were selected as a statistical sample. 64 students in two groups of 32 (experimental and control groups) were determined as the sample size. The data collection tool includes Samuels' academic resilience questionnaire (2004) and Torrance's "Abadi" creativity questionnaire (2012). After collecting information through the questionnaire, SPSS software was used to analyze the statistical data. A valid Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to check the normality of the distribution of main variables. Appropriate statistical tests such as the T-test, analysis of covariance, and ANOVA were used to analyze the data at an inferential level.
Findings: The results indicate that the lesson on thinking and lifestyle is effective on the academic resilience and creativity of female secondary school (first) students.
Conclusion: To achieve this goal, it is necessary to invest in the most influential group of society, i.e., children and teenagers, because the beginning of curiosity and creativity in children is stronger than in all age groups, and no matter how large their environment is, they are rich information sources.
