The Culture of The Heart schools Resource (for children aged 7-11) is a year-long set of Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) lesson plans. The material has been developed with input from Dr. Alison Stephens (Clinical Psychologist) and Danielle Towe (English Literacy Specialist) and has been successfully trialled in fifteen UK Primary Schools, and a number of Independent and Home Schools.
The aim of the resource is to encourage healthy relational connection within the classroom, beginnning with a child's own self-worth. The initial trials evidenced a significant shift in the culture of many classrooms and individual pupils – developing stronger relationships, emotional intellegence and building self-esteem.
Culture of the Heart Schools Resource (Ages 7-11)
The resource is structured around seven relational 'cultures', each designed to allow children to explore the building blocks of healthy communities. Each culture contains a number of clearly written lesson plans, supported by digital resources and downloads allowing teaching staff to adapt and deliver the material in and around their existing curriculums. Every lesson is underpinned by both practical guidance on the delivery itself and psychological research that grounds the learning in healthy, proven principles.
As the material deals with emotional learning and therefore requires significant time to allow themes and experiences to be processed, we would advise running the material over an entire academic year.
