Our new Kindness in the Classroom® curriculum is a Tier 1 evidenced-based social emotional learning curriculum designed to help schools create a culture of kindness. Each unit teaches six core kindness concepts: Respect, Caring, Inclusiveness, Integrity, Responsibility, and Courage.
Our new 16-week High School elective course will give you the opportunity to gather new and deeper insights about respect, caring, integrity, inclusiveness, and courage and to begin to apply them in new and more meaningful ways. Through the development and deployment of a community service project, you will build self-initiative, critical thinking, and community networking skills. Each week gives you new ways to increase your capacity for kindness.

Some kids and teens, and even adults, worry they will forget stories and memories about the person in their lives who died. Beads can help symbolize and remind us of these special memories. Create a beaded memory bracelet with beads that mean something to you or to the person who died. You can also draw pictures or write stories about the memories you think of when you look at each bead. Make a bracelet for yourself or a family member, or download and print this activity sheet to decorate a bracelet using crayons or markers.
While many study skills, composition and reading skills texts separate these activities into discrete skills to be learned separately, this books recognizes that these skills are interconnected. A student who struggles with the reading will have a hard time writing about it or discussing it. A student who has inadequate strategies for listening to lectures will struggle to see the connections between the lecture and the reading. Therefore, this book moves away from the “skills and drills” texts that are so common in reading and writing textbooks. Instead, this book features process and provides opportunities for students (and instructors) to think about the best ways to approach academic tasks. For example, a “skills and drills” oriented book might teach students how to take Cornell Notes and use graphic organizers, but it does not provide any information for students that would allow them to decide when it would be best to choose one note taking method over the other. This book’s main focus is helping students develop that sort of judgement.
