If you’re like most of our readers, you’re committed to preparing the emerging generation for real-life opportunities and challenges.

The Case for Social & Emotional Learning
How New Research Can Save Your Overwhelmed Students
One problem at many campuses across the country is educators have become one-dimensional in what we measure: academic performance. As a result of this singular focus, the anxiety levels of students are increasing while they are in school trying to achieve academic success and after graduation when they leave feeling unprepared for real life.
To help with this issue, we’ve curated months of research to create this eBook called The Case for Social & Emotional Learning. It was created to help you understand the research behind what Social & Emotional Learning is, why it is important, and how to practically develop those skills in the students at your school.
Five Research-Based Methods to Help Teens Beat Stress and Anxiety
According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, researcher Dr. Michael Leahy found "that anxiety has increased so much that typical schoolchildren during the 1980's reported more anxiety than child psychiatric patients did during the 1950's." Research from Dr. Jean Twenge released in 2017 found that there has been a sharp rise in anxiety over the last five years. Today, the Center for Disease Control tells us that about one in five teens will experience an anxiety attack or some other mental health disorder.
To help address this issue, we’ve curated months of research to create this eBook entitled Stressed Out. In essence, we want to give adults practical ways to help teens overcome stress and anxiety.

The Ethical Challenge of a New Generation with Smart Technology
Ethics and morality have been controversial subjects for more than fifty years. Each year the latest technology introduces us to opportunities that spark expanding ethical “gray areas,” especially for the next generation. Now, research from the University of Notre Dame says, “approximately two in every three young adults, ages 18-24, no longer believe there is an absolute right and wrong.” The reality is that in today's world there is less black and white and instead many shades of gray.
To help address this challenge, we’ve created this free eBook. In essence, we want to give adults practical ways to help today's teens and young adults clearly define what ethics and values they want to live by.

Parents Guide to Healthy Conversations During the Coronavirus Outbreak
As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, schools are closed across the country leading to many parents and children having increased time at home together. So how can parents take advantage of this time with their kids? Is there an opportunity to engage kids in the home in meaningful ways? We think so and it is why we created Home Chats as a resource for parents to help open up those opportunities for purposeful family discussions.
