Hope Rising's 'My Best Me' SEL Curriculum Helps Schoolchildren Learn Self-Management You are shipwrecked on an island. You've seen coconut trees and rabbits. You are optimistic you will be spotted someday. But you will construct shelter and prepare food - because you hope tomorrow will be better. And you will work to make that happen. Call Hope Rising (405-676-4140). The ‘My Best Me’ SEL curriculum includes lesson plans designed to help kids build strong characters in order to become engaged, achievement-oriented members of the community. Character education equips children with the skills they need to communicate clearly when setting and discussing their goals with peers and adults. It helps to mold kids into purposeful, problem- solving, and self-aware individuals who are contributing positively to society. Social-Emotional Learning is closely associated with the science of hope, a philosophy centered on promoting children’s resilience in the face of adversity. And kids need to know that they can control their own futures - tomorrow and the day after. Go to https://hoperisingsel.com for more information.
