High schoolers are forming mature relationships, achieving emotional independence from parents and actively shaping who they are and what they believe in. At this age, they are also building an ethical system that guides their behavior.
An effective SEL curriculum for high school considers these developmental needs and gives students opportunities to explore who they are and the impact they want to have on the world.
The five SEL competencies developed by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) are crucial to students’ learning and development.
The A Chance in the World curriculum for Grades 8–12 is based on the best-selling memoir by Steve Pemberton. Students use surveys and charts to examine their own cognitive and behavioral patterns and the issues that matter to them.
