Social and Emotional Resources

Jostens has compiled 9 videos addressing social and emotional well-being that are applicable to middle and high school. They also screened the videos with some upper elementary students and believe they are applicable for that age group as well.

There are two pieces:

  1. The video itself for each episode
  2. The critical thinking guides for each episode (available from either a Dropbox link or Google Drive link)
