SEL Clinical Information

How can SEL benefit my district as a whole?

SEL is a lifelong journey, yet the impacts felt in your district can be immediate. For instance, improving students’ social awareness can reduce classroom disruptions and lead to stronger personal relationships in life. Built by experts in the SEL industry, our curriculum aligns with the  CASEL (Collaborative for Social and Emotional Learning) framework to shape a students’ sense of self from an early age and grow as a more unified school community.

What is the SEL curriculum?

Our Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum is perfect for implementing school- or district-wide SEL programming for preschool through fifth grade. The SEL Curriculum is designed as a fully structured week-by-week curriculum for general education teachers or interventionists to use in whole-class or small group settings. Our 40-week curriculum follows the CASEL Competencies focusing on skills related to self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible-decision making. 

Everything is done for you – just follow our roadmap and use the provided videos, games, and activities to teach social-emotional skills to your students. Our SEL Curriculum helps you feel confident teaching social-emotional skills to your class no matter how much or how little SEL training you’ve had.

How do I know if the SEL curriculum is right for my students?

Our Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum is designed for Preschool through Upper Elementary students of all skill levels, including Tier 1, 2, and 3 support students. It can be used in a whole-classroom setting, small group, or 1:1 instruction. Our No-Prep SEL curriculum is developmentally sequenced into skills, goals, and units like building blocks, guiding students to continually apply and build upon previously taught skills. Our SEL curriculum equips teachers with the tools to lead rich classroom discussions and easily individualize activities for their student’s needs.

How can I convince my staff that SEL is worth our time?

Classrooms with higher social and emotional skills behave better, perform higher and have healthier interpersonal relationships. Everyday Speech makes SEL easy with a comprehensive curriculum, interactive in-class lessons, and ongoing educator support; we’ve done it all for you. 

Our SEL program boasts a No-Prep roadmap for teachers and interventionists to follow each week. One of the most important factors in social-emotional development is a child’s relationship with their teacher. This curriculum requires no preparation, yet keeps the teacher central to the lesson to foster teacher-student ties. Our 40-week curriculum is meant to be followed sequentially with the goal of empowering your staff with the structure, tools, and flexibility to teach strategies and skills that nurture healthy individuals.

My school already has a Social-Emotional Learning curriculum, how does this fit in?

The Social-Emotional Learning Platform is a great addition to any current curriculum because it comes with so many materials and covers such a wide range of skills and goals. Use the video lessons, games, or printables as supplemental materials - we’re confident these will enhance or fit in all with the target learning areas of existing curriculums.

It is also a good idea to ask yourself if the Social-Emotional Learning curriculum at your school is working for you. If not, look at what isn’t working for your school or district. Is your current curriculum outdated, and your learners don’t relate to it? Is it not engaging your students? Do teachers dread using it because it is prep-heavy? 

If these are your biggest concerns, you’re in luck! Everyday Speech has solved all of those problems for you. We add new materials every month, our materials are fresh and relatable, and we have designed our curriculum to be no-prep for ease of use.
