Introduction to Fly Five: The Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum

Date and time: Thursday, November 18, 1–2 PM ET

Description and goals:

Students and employers alike say they want “life skills” to be taught in school. We now know that SEL skills contribute to academic and professional success, and there is a new, research-based demand for curricula that teach SEL skills explicitly. Designed by Center for Responsive Schools, Fly Five is the answer to that call. 

But what does the brand-new Fly Five curriculum entail?

In this webinar, Lauren Cahillane, a Fly Five educational partnership consultant, will discuss the components of the Fly Five curriculum suite and a formula for a successful implementation.

Participants will explore:

The positive correlation between SEL skill development and student academic performance
How the Fly Five C.A.R.E.S. standards align with the CASEL 5 competencies
How Fly Five’s tools (SETI profile, professional development, School-to-Home Connection) for the adults in a child’s life contribute to successful social-emotional growth for the community
An overview of Fly Five’s curriculum components and how they work together
