NEW! Teach Different’s 40 Week Curriculum Map

When you join the Teach Different Society, you’ll have unlimited  access to our complete, 40-week social emotional learning curriculum, which was created to align to CASEL’s Five Core Competencies.

The Teach Different conversation method can be used in any educational setting: face-to-face, blended or online.

The Teach Different conversation method can be used by parents to have meaningful conversations with young people. The involvement of parents in specific, impactful educational practices strengthens the “school-parent compact.”

Teach Different videos, assignments and curriculum resources help schools build capacity for parent and family involvement by providing “materials and training to help parents work with their children.”

Research shows that student engagement is a powerful predictor of student achievement. Teach Different’s method provides parents and teachers a go-to practice that can be used to make any type of educational content more engaging.

The Teach Different Method can easily be introduced as a professional development activity for parents and teachers through live or virtual settings.

Teach Different conversations support the learning of academic content at home and at school and engage teachers and parents in the same educational mission.
