What will be done with my students

Too Good for Violence K-5 teaches the
fundamental elements of social and emotional learning through developmentally appropriate activities that set the foundation
for a healthy adolescence. Lessons build the skills kids need to set daily goals, identify emotions and feelings, and make healthy
choices that contribute to their overall health and well-being.

Curriculum features include:
*Researched based lessons that will be presented over the course of the school year through developmental guidance sessions, presented by the School Counselor.
◦Interactive lessons beginning with clearly-stated, measurable objectives.
◦A parent component, “Home Workout: Exercises for Parents and Kids,” to extend prevention skills and messages into the home.
◦A “Looking for More?” section with suggestions for infusion, recommended reading, and additional activities for reinforcing important concepts and skills.
◦Assessment materials to measure program effectiveness, fidelity of implementation, and student knowledge.
