Creating a Toolkit of SEL Skills
In the Skills21 Journey Of You (JOY), students embark on an experience that builds resilience. Through each activity students explore new practices that will instill positivity, healthy habits and Social Emotional Learning strength building.
The curriculum features 4 series of scaffolding activities and supporting videos. These include Recognize (stress in us and others), exercise and rest), Breathe (with purpose and intention), Connect (positively with others) and Flex (all that you’ve got!).
The Launchpad dashboard gives teachers the ability to easily monitor student progress and engagement with their projects. The dashboard provides real-time updates, allowing teachers to gauge student performance, identify areas of improvement, and offer timely feedback.
Schools participating in JOY have access to a dedicated coach who will work closely with the teacher and students throughout the JOY Process. Coaching efforts can be provided by email, phone or class visits (in-person & virtual).
Skills21’s Launchpad platform allows students to document their Journey of You (JOY) through a compelling JOY portfolio. A student’s portfolio can include documents, slides, images, photos, GIFs, and videos - everything they need to create a visually exciting demonstration of their project online.
