S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education Curriculum
You’ve done a great job building up your program and empowering your leaders to change the lives of the youth you serve. Yet you still find disengaged, unmotivated students and maybe your reports show it. From high dropout and teen pregnancy rates to poor test scores and low literacy levels, your program could use the support of a unique literacy and life skills curriculum that can reverse that and help your students deal with life and prepare for and overcome the obstacles that keep them from succeeding.
Have you ever seen a single curriculum that:
academic performance * standardized test scores * graduation rates * post-secondary attendance rates * social and emotional learning and expression
Bullying * discipline referrals * dropouts * teen pregnancy * the devastating impacts of ACE’s (adverse childhood experiences)?
A UNIQUE CURRICULUM TO GET YOUR STUDENTS READING AND READY FOR LIFE’S CHALLENGES
The S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills and Character education curriculum uses the real-life story of former teen mother turned resilient, success story, Summer Owens, to help schools and youth programs empower students to achieve success regardless of their challenges.
Through workbooks, students explore their lives and their obstacles, examine their choices, and learn to eliminate the excuses that often hold them back. This ACE’s-informed curriculum gets to the core of students’ challenges to increase their interest in reading, knowing themselves, and achieving goals. The curriculum uses higher learning standards for English Language Arts to build literacy skills while teaching valuable life lessons and character traits to help students make good choices and create their own S.O. What! success stories.
A Proven Curriculum Driven by stories and backed by data
I’ve been a firm believer in the impact of this book/curriculum for students since its conception. I know from experience with students that it impacts their belief, hope, social, emotional well-being especially our at-risk students.
