SEL that WORKS because it’s IMMERSIVE
TEAMology’s immersive SEL framework uses our 4 C’s (Culture, Characters, Context, Curriculum) to create an environment where learning opportunities for foundational emotional skills are pervasive throughout the day and continually reinforced while learning other traditional hard skills.
Building Successful Team CULTURE
TEAMology’s immersive SEL framework can be applied at an early age, weaving a holistic framework into the daily activities and lessons through curriculum, context and reinforcing learning aids that consistently span all subject matter throughout grades K-8. We leverage technology with the goal of facilitating human interaction by incorporating a mix of digital and physical engagement tools designed to maximize effectiveness. In order to accomplish this we uniquely integrate three critical elements of Characters, Context and Curriculum to achieve an effective, flexible, sustainable outcome.
CHARACTERS aren’t just Mascots
Each is built around an interconnected foundational skillset that benefit SEL, school climate and career readiness. Those skillsets are brought to life with each character’s research-backed personality (message) that reflects a unique culture, skillset and career path. Lessons also benefit from interrelationships between the characters that exemplify the potential of team building toward overall success. The sustained relatability enabled through characters aging with the student from elementary to middle school creates a long term foundation where students more easily accumulate increasingly strong skill sets through their continual reinforcement.
Lessons are CONTEXT, Not Just Content
More importantly, they are built around our unique characters and the SEL skills they promote. This allows otherwise abstract soft skills to be easily taught and understood, helping students generalize in and out of school. This context makes TEAMology an ideal vehicle to accompany nearly all subjects and topics. The common language simplifies learning and reinforces concepts frequently, resulting in more sustainable efforts across the board, not just with TEAMology specifically.
CURRICULUM That Integrates Everywhere
The relatability and context created through TEAMology is portable across curriculums and programs. Because of this TEAMology can uniquely initiate an SEL program or, complement other existing programs. Its alignment with existing programs such as ESSA, MTSS, & PBIS helps improve cohesiveness and simplify implementation. We have also designed character-based engagement items such as t-shirts, posters, and card decks that become invaluable in reinforcing key lessons, and amplifying team culture.
