Teach social-emotional competence—the foundation of school and social success—with the NEW editions of the Strong Teens™—Grades 9–12 curriculum! Strong Teens is the fun and easy way to help your students develop the social-emotional skills they need to manage their challenges and succeed in school and life. Developed by a team of educational and mental health experts, this evidence-based, age-appropriate curriculum is

  • Low cost and low tech
  • Proven to help increase students' knowledge of social and emotional concepts and decrease their emotional and behavioral problems
  • Easy to implement with no mental health training required
  • Brief enough to use with any program

Through engaging, thought-provoking classroom activities, students learn about emotions and the social-emotional skills they'll use for the rest of their lives: managing anger, reducing stress, solving interpersonal problems, and much more. This scientifically-based curriculum runs for 12 weeks, and lessons are easy to fit into your existing schedule (especially with the new options for breaking them into smaller chunks). Partially scripted lessons, handouts, and worksheets are included—all photocopiable and available as downloads—so teachers have everything they need to implement the program with little added cost or preparation.

Review by: Paul Caldarella, Associate Professor, Brigham Young University, Center for the Improvement of Teacher Education and Schooling, Department of Counseling Psychology and Special Education
“My colleagues and I have conducted several studies on the curricula in the Strong Kids series and have been impressed with how easily public school educators have been able to implement these with fidelity. We have also documented improvements in students’ internalizing symptoms (e.g., anxiety and depression) following implementation of Strong Kids, particularly for at-risk students. We look forward to using the updated curricula in future studies.”
Review by: Lori Ernsperger, Executive Director of Behavioral Training Resource Center, and author of Recognize, Respond, Report: Preventing and Addressing Bullying of Students with Special Needs.
“The authors of the Strong Kids 2nd Edition tackle an important topic for educators: Social Emotional Learning. The series is highly recommended and will prove invaluable to school professionals with structured lesson plans and supplementary materials to help all students succeed. ”
