The Safe & Caring Schools teacher activity guides support the standards from the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) for the infusion of social and emotional learning into the classroom. Those key competencies are: Awareness of Self and Others, Positive Attitudes and Values, Responsible Decision Making, and Social Interaction Skills. In addition, the material correlates with standards for social studies, language arts, health, and other areas of the curriculum.

Safe & Caring Schools helps you provide social and emotional learning (SEL) in classrooms to improve student dynamics, school climate, and academic achievement. A 2007 research report: The Effects of Social and Emotional Learning on the behaviour and Academic Performance of School Children; shows that students who were exposed to SEL were better behaved, had less anxiety, and had more positive attitudes than those who were not part of SEL. In addition, even though incorporating SEL activities required time in the school day, it did not negatively affect students' academic performance; in fact, their scores on standardized tests increased 11 percentile points.

Safe & Caring Schools offers:

  • Easy-to-use lesson plans with more than 100 activities per teacher guide
  • Nine flexible themes to use monthly or as individual, stand-alone lessons throughout the year
  • Character-based teaching and learning on such topics as integrity, respect, responsibility, honesty, persistence, accountability, bullying prevention, and anger and conflict management
  • Classroom-tested reproducible activity sheets for positive reinforcement, available in teacher guides and on included CD-ROMs
  • Literature-based activities that pair suggested books with every lesson to integrate learning across the curriculum
  • Helpful tips for organizing a schoolwide program
  • Group-graded materials (PreK-K, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8) and large, bold posters that reinforce key concepts of the program
