Changing Perspectives is pleased to announce that we are offering a variety of updates to our curriculum resources and online platform for next fall.
Changing Perspectives partners with schools and school districts across the country to promote social-emotional learning and cultivate inclusive and equitable learning communities for all students.
Changing Perspectives supports schools in four ways: curriculum resources, individual coaching, professional development training, and resources for families.
Our social-emotional learning and disability awareness curriculum provides educators with lesson plans, reading material, video links, discussion questions and more for students in PreK through High School.
Professional development training empowers the entire school faculty in the process of transforming school culture with a focus on social-emotional learning.
Individual Coaching provides educators with one-on-one access to a Changing Perspectives expert for advice, immediate feedback and ongoing support.
“I am so thankful for all that Changing Perspectives offers. As a first year counselor, this was the most supportive resource.”
“Changing Perspectives is user-friendly and I’ve had a lot of success with getting students to open up, even if they wouldn’t have previously done so.”
Curriculum Resources are made available through our customizable Educator Portal. This online platform allows users to access an array of curricular resources, parent resources, educator implementation guides, and more.
Social-emotional learning (SEL) is an essential component of every child’s education and is vital for activating humans’ innate capacity to form social connections and empathy.
Disability awareness is an avenue to social-emotional learning.To create a more inclusive world tomorrow students need opportunities to gain an awareness of disabilities today.
