Tools for Student Social and Emotional
There is a program which has successfully provided teachers in 90 countries with the resources, tools and teacher training to effectively improve student behavior and community involvement. The recently updated Lions Quest program for 9-12 graders provides a complete Social and Emotional Learning curriculum with one-semester, one-year, or multi-year implementation options.  The innovative and flexible curriculum moves beyond the classroom to foster civic responsibility and build essential social, emotional, academic, and workplace skills.  Two service-learning projects help foster civic responsibility as students move beyond the classroom and apply, social, emotional, academic, and workplace skills. For more program information go to
A two-day workshop provides teachers with the understanding and skills to effectively use the curriculum.  For Ohio we need 12-40 teachers to set up a workshop in a location convenient for attendees.  Contact Charles Newland at cnjnewland@yahoo.com or Paul Nutter at
