Doing Our PARRT Pre-K through Grade 8 Social Emotional Behavioral (SEB) curriculum
None of us would disagree that character traits are important for our students to master as we work toward achieving the district mission to “develop 21st century learners and productive, responsible citizens.” Social Emotional Behavioral (SEB) learning is the process of acquiring skills to manage emotions effectively, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations effectively. This type of learning does not happen naturally for all of our children. What better setting to teach these skills directly than the learning communities our students come to each day at school? The Doing Our PARRT curriculum was designed to help students acquire these skills at the elementary level in the Cedar Rapids Schools. Key components include:
* Working together to build a positive, caring learning environment * Children learn and practice essential lifeskills on a regular basis * Lessons focus on friendship skills, learning to manage emotions, solving conflicts peacefully, and reducing incidents of bullying
