Unlike some SEL programs used in schools, Suite360 offers age-appropriate content and scaffolded lessons for each grade band. The lessons are developmentally appropriate for each age group and build upon lessons learned in the previous grade band. As the curriculum progresses, lesson content, imagery, and activities reflect the evolution of students as they mature. Suite360 is aligned with the five core competencies outlined by CASEL and each grade band features unique lessons that grow and mature with students. There are no recycled lessons between grade bands, meaning even if lesson topics are the same, each grade band features a unique lesson.
When you use Suite360’s social-emotional curriculum, you enable students to learn and grow with curriculum relevant to their age. Read more below to discover how Suite360’s unique, age-appropriate, and scaffolded learning provides suitable SEL for all students:
