Power of Three is a hands-on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum designed to support Kindergarten through 5th grade students with empowering their understanding of the brain and how to make the best choices possible.

The Power of Three “Friends” share successes and struggles they have with Kindergarten through 2nd grade students. Upper elementary students begin to develop an understanding beyond themselves and see the impact of their choices on their classmates and community. Each grade level has unique tier I lessons that are “cluster taught” early in the school year, ensuring that all students have explicit instruction on the five CASEL competencies, with continued instruction 2-3 times per month for the remainder of the year. For students that are struggling, twenty-five additional tier II intervention lessons are ready to go for support.

OVERVIEW

WHY THE POWER OF THREE?

The curriculum focuses on implementing Tier I instruction, along with providing school staff with a tool that will address a range of behaviors before, during, and after they occur. What makes The Power of Three different from other SEL curricula is the additional assistance it provides to your intervention team with creating a Tier 2 Intervention Plan. Here's how we stand out:

POWER OF THREE
CEU INFORMATION:

TOOLS TO IMPLEMENT TIER 1

The Power of Three is centered around Tier I instruction for all students in their general education classroom, “cluster taught” early in the school year, ensuring all students receive explicit instruction on the five CASEL competencies.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade students are introduced to the competencies through The Power of Three “Friends”, and learn how the characters struggle and succeed.

Students in 2nd-3rd grade continue to go deeper into the CASEL competencies, with connections to children’s literature.

As students get older, their understanding beyond themselves begins to develop, and students in 4th-5th grade have an opportunity to make a difference in their community with the Power of Three Curriculum.

TOOLS TO IMPLEMENT TIER 2

Students identified through DESSA assessments as potentially benefiting from additional support for social and emotional learning after the tier I instruction, will receive hands-on intervention support 3-5 times per week for approximately 7-9 weeks, from an interventionist teacher. Lessons focus on either verbal or physical behaviors and engage students by having them participate in activities such as team building, art projects, or role playing.  All lessons are focused on using skills and strategies which help them remain in their “thinking brain” resulting in making good choices. When students use their “thinking brains,” they are better equipped to make positive decisions for themselves and their school community. By completing these intervention lessons with struggling students, your school will see a decrease in behavior incidents, which should also result in a decrease of referrals for special education evaluations.
