The Acceptance Curriculum

Curriculum

The Acceptance Curriculum is designed for primary grades (preK-5th).

It offers a yearlong workshop-type curriculum that includes unit objectives to teach the overall community, and reach acceptance of those who are, feel or express themselves differently.

It is packed with youth and teacher tested activities, lessons, social interaction exercises, practical teaching tips, and descriptions of recommended acceptance continuum sequencing.

The Acceptance Curriculum reflects established approaches supporting state-of-the-art teaching practices and aligns unit lessons with appropriate common core curriculum standards.
