During weekly social learning lessons, our speech and language pathologist and school counselors push into every classroom. In these lessons, students break down the complexities of the social world and learn strategies for how to navigate it. Teachers participate in these lessons so that they can support the generalization of the vocabulary and concepts throughout the school day.
Currently, students across all divisions continue to practice recognizing and responding to their own and others’ emotions using the Zones of Regulation curriculum, group discussion, and analysis of photos and popular media. As a school, we practice mindfulness and explore many tools and strategies to help manage feelings in an adaptive and pro-social manner.
