Middle School SEL Lessons

From our Second Step partners, here is a starter kit of SEL lessons for middle school advisories.

Overcoming Obstacles is a free, award-winning, and research-based curriculum that provides educators with the tools to teach elementary, middle, and high school students life skills.

Restorative Practices

DPS is committed to a restorative approach to SEL, which means that we work with students rather than doing things to them or for them. Here are some basic resources for planning restorative classroom discussions.
