As part of our commitment to educating the whole learner, Edgenuity has expanded our social and emotional learning (SEL) offerings through our Purpose Prep product line. We now offer 9 courses for students in grades 6–12, 2 courses for students in grades K–5, and a separate curriculum built especially for educators to help them manage their own social and emotional health and develop the language and skills needed to successfully integrate SEL into their district, school, and classroom.
Our premier library of SEL curricula is designed to set students of all ages on the path to success, purpose, and happiness. It empowers educators to build a culture of SEL, a need that has been growing especially in recent months.
These curricula were created with the aid of therapists, counselors, and subject-matter experts, and align to CASEL competencies, MTSS and PBIS best practices, and other national standards. Each multimedia-rich lesson includes videos featuring over 80 diverse experts with varied experience who bring learning to life with conversations about timely, relevant topics. Discussions and assignments encourage meaningful interaction with adults and peers, which can help reduce behavioral incidents, including disciplinary referrals and suspensions.
However students and educators utilize these curricula, they can increase academic success, improve attitudes toward school, develop pro-social behavior, and reduce stress, anxiety, and depression for both students and educators.
Our robust library of SEL lessons offers educators rich content that can be implemented for individual, small-group, and whole-class instruction, as well as both in-person and virtual learning. Educators can use the full courses or the lessons within them for prevention, intervention, and restorative justice.
Students are introduced to different ways to cope with social and emotional challenges, and learn responsible decision-making and relationship skills from the engaging lessons. As students work through lessons, they’ll also develop critical life and workforce skills, and build compassion and empathy for others.
New in 2020, our elementary-level SEL curriculum offers age-appropriate lessons across two courses that provide a powerful foundation for students. As they move through the engaging lessons, students focus on recognizing, understanding, and regulating basic emotions and feelings, and learn about respectful and inclusive behavior along with positive communication skills. The content in these lessons is aligned to Common Core ELA standards and includes short conversational videos, classroom routines and lesson plans, downloadable worksheets, and storytime sheets.
Our SEL curriculum for grades 6–12 is organized into 9 courses and nearly 200 lessons, and features assessments, learning targets, essential questions, and success criteria within each course. In 2020, we released three new courses that are designed to help students and educators address emerging needs: Climate & Culture Transformation, Restorative Practices & Principles, and Trauma-Informed Living. Questions and call-to-action assignments in each lesson encourage interaction with adults and peers and are aligned to demonstration of skills for ELA standards.
Also new in 2020, our SEL curriculum for educators features content delivered in an engaging multimedia environment. Learning is self-paced, but guided with a focus on enhancing life skills and purpose. Lessons offer opportunities for practice with modeling and mentoring students through their own SEL journeys. Educators have access to 12 courses with 18 lessons in each course, which include dynamic coaching videos, call-to-purpose tasks for applied learning, and more, all designed to help them build a foundation in SEL to gain confidence in engaging students in SEL conversations.
These curricula are aligned to CASEL competencies, MTSS and PBIS best practices, and other national standards, including Common Core. The following documents provide more detail about these alignments, as well as the scope and sequence of the courses.
The elementary SEL curriculum runs in the Purpose Prep learning management system, Pathwright. Login instructions for the content preview will be emailed to the judges, and the quick start guide is below:

Whether you’re attending your first or 40th conference, it can be hard to decide how to best to use your time at edtech conferences and events, especially when dealing with delayed flights, traffic, and a great host city. That’s why it’s important to do a little legwork before arriving at the conference venue.
To begin, think about what you’re hoping to gain from the conference. Why are you going? If it’s a conference you’ve attended before, why are you returning? If you had to get permission to attend the conference, think back to why you explained to your boss that it’d be valuable for you to attend.
With this information fresh in mind, you can start thinking about your goals for the conference, which is the first step in determining how to spend your time there. Doing that in combination with following our five tips for attending edtech conferences will help you have the best conference experience you can!
