What does Mentorship+ add to the SEL Foundations Curriculum?
Mentorship+ means that you have a dedicated athlete mentor for the entire school year! On your teacher dashboard, you will see several additional features:
WELCOME TO OUR JOURNEY VIDEO: Begin by sharing a personalized video message from your athlete mentor, who will explain this year's SEL program to your classroom.
KICKOFF KIT: Find clever ways to reveal this year's athlete mentor to your classroom. Begin the year with this announcement, and then dive into the eight units month over month.
MENTOR VIDEOS: In addition to the Unit Athlete Mentor Videos, you will have eight thematic videos from your athlete mentor sharing his/her personal stories related to the units' eight themes. Play these in conjunction or to reinforce the Unit Athlete Mentor Videos. Help strengthen your students' connections to this year's athlete mentor.
COMMUNITY BETA: We are testing out a new exclusive community hub for you to connect with other Classroom Champions teachers and with your athlete mentor on a regular basis. Trade best practices and share your success stories with one another.
