WellCheq is a digital application that provides a daily wellness check-in for students. Students log in each day and answer two questions - how are you feeling today, and how are you doing overall? This information is then immediately available to the teacher or counselor. WellCheq tracks both individual and class data over the short and long term. Students reporting a three (out of five) or lower are identified with an email to the teacher and go on the Students of Concern page. Students log in through the student portal to provide responses and access suggested resources. There is a link for students to ask for help using the "Cheq on me" button. Create and use a teacher account to add and manage classrooms and access reports. Reports include daily information, students of concern, as well as longitudinal class and student reports.

tag(s): emotions (46), identity (26), social and emotional learning (64), Teacher Utilities (127)

In the Classroom

Share WellCheq with your school counselors for possible use in monitoring the mental wellness of students. If your school doesn't want to use a program such as this, consider other possibilities for sharing wellness tips with students and parents and share resources for obtaining help when needed.

Using SEL skills, students better understand emotion, manage their own, and show empathy towards others. SEL skills also help students set and achieve positive goals. Although this is an ongoing process through all grade levels, you can begin to instill these skills and understandings in even your youngest students. We encourage you to find appropriate tools and resources in this collection to use with your students and in your lessons.

Project Ready provides twenty-seven teaching modules focused on improving relationships and instruction to multicultural youth. The curriculum focuses on educating youth services library staff on how to amplify multicultural works. It provides strategies for improving library programs and services for urban youth, Indigenous youth, and children and teens of any color. Included in each module are videos and audio examples focused on the topic. Begin with the Curriculum Guide, from the right menu "Pages," to understand the organization of the modules and the thought process toward creating the cycle of instruction.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (151), difficult conversations (51), diversity (33), native americans (81), racism (71)

In the Classroom

Project Ready's modules are designed for use by individuals or small groups. Although this content is directed at library services, the information is invaluable for anyone who works with youth. Follow the curriculum for your personal growth or as a grade or content-level peer group. Completing all of the modules requires an extended time period; in fact, it might be helpful to use for professional development over two years instead of one school year. If you and your peers don't have time to complete all of the curricula, consider choosing individual modules based on your desired professional development goals and school needs to study as a group or for your own personal development.

Connecthub includes tools to organize and clarify instructional coaching for both the coach and the educator. Share this tool with tech and academic coaches to use as a guide and to document interactions. Set up a coaching schedule based on participants' needs. For example, if your district or school is implementing new technology tools, use Connecthub to create a training schedule based on individual teachers' needs and classroom use. Ask teachers to share their coaching needs and use this tool to collaborate and create a road map for training. Share documented interactions as part of your ongoing professional development to include when preparing for teaching evaluations.
