Changemakers, our nationally acclaimed classroom curriculum focused on social emotional learning, was developed by mental health professionals and educators for pre-kindergarten 3 through 5th grade.Inquire
What our students know academically matters as much as who they are as people.
We emphasize understanding how the brain works, how to manage and control emotions, how to nurture and build strong relationships, and so much more. Mental health matters and we make sure students and staff have opportunities to develop as emotionally thriving people.
Changemakers curriculum is accredited by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as an Elementary SELect Program.
Through a series of free-standing lessons, mental health is made a priority with the goal of increasing student empathy, kindness, and compassion.
Changemakers curriculum – available as a kit or digitally for pre-kindergarten 3 to fifth grade – contains 25-52 lessons organized into five overarching themes: Safe Relationships, Self-regulation, Awareness of Self, Understanding Others, and Changemaker. Lessons are also broken up into 15 skill-focused units such as Gratitude, Resilience, Empathy, and Hope.
Grade Levels, Themes, Units and Lessons
Units are prefaced with a Teacher Practice section that provides teachers with essential knowledge of topics covered.
