The hope-influenced educational non-profit has updated its ‘My Best Me’ SEL curriculum with lesson plans that are designed to help kids build strong characters in order to become engaged, achievement-oriented members of the community. Character education equips children with the skills they need to consider their personal goals and communicate clearly when discussing these goals with peers and adults – as purposeful, problem-solving, and self-aware individuals who are contributing positively to society.

Hope Rising’s updated lesson plans combine overlapping approaches to kids’ education, focusing on psycho-social building blocks that increase children’s self-confidence and ability to relate to others. With the help of the student-centered curriculum “My Best Me,” students can have a personalized learning experience that helps them connect with the subject matter more deeply and appreciate what they are learning.

Social-Emotional Learning is closely associated with the science of hope, a philosophy centered on promoting children’s resilience in the face of adversity – a core tenet of the ‘My Best Me’ curriculum. The non-profit organization’s founding principal echoes Dr. Chan Hellman’s book, ‘Hope Rising: How the Science of Hope Can Change Your Life’.
Dr. Hellman, a board member of Hope Rising, posits that hope can help children see themselves as agents of change – problem-solvers who can create a better tomorrow for themselves and, in the future, the community at large. Moreover, hope helps kids to adapt to changing circumstances and unpredictable – often adverse – events.
In other words, disappointment – a canceled birthday party, for example – can give way to alternative solutions for an enjoyable day out. An ailing family member can prompt not only sadness but also ways to help that person feel better.
‘My Best Me’ includes grade-appropriate and multimedia-enhanced lessons to promote student collaboration, engagement, and open communication. The curriculum can be divided into more frequent, shorter sessions if needed, but it is intended to be taught in one hour each week. Lessons are not sequential, so teachers can combine them with other subjects and current events as they see fit.
There is an online training contributed by Dr. Chan Hellman and a private Facebook group where teachers can share ideas with other educators implementing the curriculum. Additional training and ideas for how best to implement the curriculum in any designated school district are also provided.
