Second Step in an evidence based curriculum used to teach social and emotion skills to students in Pre-K to 8th grade. The goal of the program is to support students at each stage of development hone their social skills. By providing this support on a consistent basis throughout the school year, students are able to integrate the learned skills into daily activities.
Our youngest learners will benefit more from preschool and be better prepared for kindergarten with self-regulation and executive-function skills that help them pay attention, remember directions, and control their behavior.
Students in grades K–5 continue developing their social-emotional skills—including making friends, managing emotions, and solving problems—to set them on the path for social success and academic readiness.
Middle-schoolers are better prepared to navigate adolescence with communication, coping, and decision-making skills that help them make good choices and avoid pitfalls, such as peer pressure, substance abuse, and bullying.
