Teachers Need Tools

Social-Emotional
Learning (SEL)

93% of teachers want a greater focus on SEL in schools. They agree that social and emotional skills are teachable and are calling for schools to prioritize SEL content.

Why Do Kids Needs SEL?

Anxiety, Depression,
& Suicide Rates Climb

Rates of child/teen suicide and hospitalization due to self-harm and suicidal ideation go up when schools are in session and go down when schools are on break. Bullying, cyberbullying, and school violence are all on the rise. The time to change the atmosphere of school is now.

Frustration Intolerance
and Conflict Escalation

Children are not born knowing how to manage their big emotions, especially anger, fear, and frustration. Children do not know how to handle conflict without instruction. PostCovid, children's social and emotional skills have been forgotten or unpracticed. SEL reaffirms these needed skills.

Poor Emotional
Regulation Skills

The scientific study of children's brains has told us that a child who is emotionally dysregulated (stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated, in meltdown) literally can NOT learn. Until we help children learn to manage their emotions, academics will fall behind.

Behavior Problems
In Classrooms Escalating

School is back in session as usual and we are hearing from teachers that classroom management is a major struggle. It is proven that social-emotional learning helps children with strategies for regulation and leads to better overall classroom behavior and management.

SEL In Action

SEL has been a part of school for almost as long as school has existed. Teachers have always prided themselves on not only covering academics but creating genuinely good humans who can be happy and successful in adulthood.

Post-Covid, after years of closures, disruptions, pivots, isolation, and fear, the stats are coming out on just how damaging it has been to our children and their emotional and mental well-being and social skills.

In a recent survey, 70% of youth self-rated their ability to cope with challenges as medium to very low. The time for increased SEL in schools is now.

Mio In School

Studies show that SEL interventions increase students’ academic performance and that students who participate in SEL programs show improved classroom behavior, have an increased ability to manage stress, and have better attitudes about themselves, others, and school.

The MiO program consists of ready-to-go lessons you can read aloud and discuss with your students, followed by activities. This helps solidify the information and allows your students to reflect and retain. Activities are flexible and allow you to adapt, add, or omit as needed to best suit your classroom needs.
