Helping Middle and High School Students Learn Social Emotional Skills
Self-awareness, impulse control, empathy, teamwork, and responsible decision-making are just some of the social emotional skills that help students succeed in and out of school. Unfortunately, many students aren't developing them. What if there was a straightforward way to teach students empathy and encourage emotional development? That's why we created Habitudes for Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) to teach social skills to middle and high school youths.

Practical SEL Lesson Plans
The Habitudes for Social and Emotional Learning curriculum uses memorable imagery, real-life stories and practical experiences to teach timeless emotional skills in a way that is relevant to students today. Students are constantly using images to communicate via emojis, Instagram, and Snapchat. Why not utilize their favorite language to bridge the gap between learning and real-life application as part of your social emotional learning program?
Our SEL curriculum helps middle and high school students:
- Develop habits of self-discipline and initiative
- Implement time management skills to do what really counts
- Plan for personal growth outside the classroom
- Identify their unique strengths and passions for a healthy self-image
- And many more social and emotional skills
