Safe & Caring Schools Resource Guides

These resource guides incorporate social and emotional learning into daily academic instruction to improve academic success and school climate. The lessons are organized thematically by month and contain clear objectives, activities, simple directions, and blackline masters. The themes address student skills in areas such as understanding and expressing emotions, making and maintaining friendships, bullying, teamwork, problem solving, decision making, and goal setting. The guide also includes teacher assessment forms for school/classroom climate and ideas for extended activities to incorporate the thematic lessons into other academic subject areas such as language arts, math, and social studies.
