Courageous Classrooms: Skill of the Week

Course Access: 365 days access
Course Overview

Forty customizable weekly lessons to teach, model, and reinforce life-long social, emotional, and behavioral skills


The aim of the program is to empower teachers, schools, and their students to create Courageous Classrooms by providing each a basic understanding of the body’s response to toxic stress and trauma, teaching new skills to cope with everyday triggers and school-related stressors, and reinforcing resilience and positive behavior. The content is designed to fit into elementary classrooms or school-wide Tier I behavioral health supports, but it can be easily adapted for all grade levels and generalized for all settings – including a child’s home, school, and community.

Materials Included

  • Comprehensive introductory video that introduces educators to the program concepts, implementation strategies, and underlying philosophy of how to support student’s social, emotional, and behavioral growth
  • 40 customizable weekly lessons (4 comprehensive units with 5 stand-alone lessons)
  • PowerPoint lessons to introduce and teach each skill in the classroom
  • Classroom visuals and/or poster of each skill or set of skills
  • Student worksheets for additional practice and review of each skill
  • Weekly staff emails for sharing information across a school or school system
  • Weekly parent/guardian letters to help extend lessons into homes and communities
  • Access to a community (through a closed Facebook group) of like-minded professionals actively using the Skill of the Week program. Teach, learn, and grow together as experts in social-emotional learning.
