Each lesson in the curriculum builds on one another and can be referred to at a later time. This will help students that require repetition to learn new skills.
Thank you for great resources and a great, refreshing training that will help our students and provide so much guidance and support for staff and parents—like they have been asking for!
As a high school special education teacher, it is evident that this curriculum was created by individuals who have worked in the classroom and understand our population. It was designed with them in mind and that is not something you see every day.
I was pulling random material from books and [the] internet. This gives me a “one stop shop” for a complete curriculum!
The visuals, the lesson plans plotted out, and the topics discussed are all very helpful. The home supplements and letters to send out save us time (MUCH APPRECIATED!)
I love the fact that it ties into what I teach on a daily basis. The posters are a good supplement to all of the lessons.
My students really struggle with developing and maintaining relationships. This curriculum outlines rules and guidelines for them.
This curriculum helps my students understand the difference between friends, acquaintances, and bullies. It will also give me a formal way to teach both hygiene and sexual education.
The curriculum addresses all of the issues socially, sexually, and educationally that our students do not get with public education. Visuals are great and lessons are scripted well.
Social concerns are a huge “goal” that always comes up with families and understanding boundaries with peers.
Hygiene! Most of my students deal with poor hygiene. I have sheets that weekly go home to try to help, but this specifically, step by step, deals with it.
High school students need to be aware of the sexuality and all of Module 3, Relationship Development. They will encounter a lot of these scenarios in real life situations and this curriculum will help prepare and educate them when the time comes.
[The training] was awesome. I learned so much from the facilitators leading the training, including ideas and techniques that will be very beneficial to teaching my group.
The training is definitely the foundation for me teaching a successful group. Without this, I don’t feel I would be really as successful. The manual is such a great tool!
