TOOLBOX: SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING CURRICULUM FOR K-6 STUDENTS

  • Toolbox is a research-based social-emotional learning curriculum.  It teaches critical social competencies necessary for academic and life success such as: resiliency, self-management, and responsible decision-making skills. Years of research in the field of childhood resilience and social-emotional learning have taught us that emotional and behavioral regulation skills can be explicitly taught in schools and that the benefits are huge! Significant data from 213 studies indicate that SEL programs are associated with positive results:
    • Improved attitudes about self and others,
    • Increased pro-social behavior,
    • Lower levels of problem behaviors and emotional distress, and
    • Improved academic performance (Catalano et al., 2002; Greenberg et al., 2003; Zins et al., 2004).
    • David Douglas School District has adopted Toolbox for use in grades K-6.
