  • A comprehensive curriculum manual providing step-by-step guidance, with fully-scripted lessons, coordinated visual aids and classroom handouts

  • Classroom posters reinforcing key concepts

  • Family communication materials

  • And more!


Build parent support and involvement

Helping parents get involved in the PATHS® program is a great way to bring social and emotional learning home. When asked, 81% of parents think SEL is important in school! The PATHS® program provides parent support and reinforcement of the PATHS® program concepts at home ensures that children fully absorb the skills acquired through classroom sessions. Many lessons include at-home activities (available in English and Spanish) and other send-home materials.


Fully scripted, developmentally appropriate lesson plans

Each PATHS® program classroom module is designed to be easy, flexible and straightforward. Each grade’s curriculum manual is divided into clearly defined units, and each unit includes an overview of its goals, tips for implementation, answers to common questions, and theoretical background.


Appropriate for every student

The PATHS® program is intended to improve the school environment for all children through the use of common language and strategies. The program is inclusive — it’s been proven effective with children with special needs and was originally developed in hearing-impaired classrooms.
