Synopsis

Developed over three decades, this research-validated curriculum focuses on teaching skills that will enable students to be reflective, non-impulsive, and responsible decision makers and problem solvers while emphasizing critical thinking skills. SDM/SPS impacts student behavior, academic learning, and social/emotional life. It promotes a multicultural perspective by building group cohesion, acceptance of differences, and the ability to understand different points of view. The activities build skills such as self-control, listening, respectful communication, how to give and receive help, and how to work cooperatively and fairly in groups. The program uses a wide range of cooperative learning methods, such as small-group brainstorming, problem solving, and role-playing activities. Includes assessment tools for tracking progress and numerous reproducible worksheets.
