Tool Description

Based on over 20 years of research and classroom application, the award-winning SECOND STEP program integrates academics with social and emotional learning. Children from preschool through eighth grade learn and practice important skills, such as anger management, cooperation, respectful behavior, and problem solving. These skills help decrease students' negative and violent behaviors—fighting, name-calling, and stereotyping—helping to return the focus of classroom time to where it belongs: learning. Children also learn to recognize and respect people with different backgrounds, perspectives, and ethnicities. These essential life skills will help students in the classroom, on the playground, and at home.
