TUF SEL COURSES

*Number listed next to each course = number of SEL lessons. Each lesson is 40 minutes long.

The question remains, where and how are these necessary life skills being taught? Most educational programs only focus on the IQ and academic arena revolving around standardized tests. However, research shows that social and emotional intelligence (SEL) has a greater influence on a person’s lifelong success than academic intelligence. By learning how to manage emotions, set and achieve goals, experience empathy and form positive relationships, young adults are able to make responsible decisions to achieve success in all aspects in life.

How can your school BEST IMPLEMENT Social Emotional Learning for your students?

Not sure where TUF SEL will fit into your school day? Great news! We are here to help! Our Implementation Specialists will work with you to develop your own customized implementation plan.

Our Implementation Specialist works with each school on how to best to utilize TUF curriculum to make the most effective and sustainable outcome. Our goal is to positively change the culture of each school by creating TUF as a positive common language among all students and teachers.

For an example of some implementation models, please see the different options below.

TUF Everyday: (40 minutes per day) *Most popular choice

TUF’s most robust model. Most schools incorporate TUF into a particular subject fit. (Examples: Advisory, Avid, Health/PE, Health, Critical Thinking, Peer Counseling, Student Success Class, English, Social Studies and more.)

We can help you create a roadmap with our 25 + courses/200+ Lessons!

Implementing TUF every day is the most effective way to positively impact the culture of your school.

Home Room/ Morning Show: (10 – 20 minutes per day)

What a great way to start the school day with an engaging and motivating video from one of our favorite TUF coaches! Because TUF videos are typically only 2-3 minutes long, they are time-efficient and a great intro into class or small group discussions. Starting the morning off with a TUF Talksets the right tone for the day and creates a positive mindset for both students AND teachers.

TUF Tuesday: (40 minutes per week)

It’s TUF day at your school, where one class period a week is allocated for TUF courses. Students look forward to this special day where all students are “talking TUF!” Incorporate TUF t-shirts and wristbands to create schoolwide TUF spirit!

ISS: (Each TUF segment is a 40 -minute session)

Our Individual Stand- AlonePlatform option is perfect for ISS (In-School Suspension or behavioral issues) where students can be autonomous and take TUF at their own pace without a teacher. The student data and reporting are efficient, allowing the teacher to track the students’ comments and results in order to get an insightful look into specific behavioral issues. A win/win for both student and teacher!
