About Harmony SEL
Harmony SEL is an innovative social and emotional learning program for pre-K-6 grade students designed to foster communication, connection, and community both in and outside the classroom. Built around five themed units, the program strives to develop children into compassionate and caring adults through engaging, developmentally appropriate lessons, activities, and games. These five themed units include Diversity & Inclusion, Empathy & Critical Thinking, Communication, Problem Solving, and Peer Relationships. All Harmony content is available in English and Spanish.
Harmony’s approach to SEL implementation is both individual and community driven, as children learn with and from their peers through collaborative activities and lessons with Harmony. In this way, inclusion and equity are central to SEL, as they are essential for fostering an environment where authentic relationships and a healthy sense of identity can thrive. Harmony equips students, educators, and families with the knowledge and skills to think critically and seek inclusive solutions for their learning communities.
Since the program’s inception in 2008, researchers have conducted rigorous evaluations of Harmony components – providing sufficient evidence to be named a CASEL SELect program. The program has continued to develop effective classroom curriculum, teaching tools, and family support to meet the changing needs of diverse learning communities. These developments include expanded online implementation training, a mobile gaming app that builds SEL competencies and mindfulness through play, and a distance learning guide complete with lesson plans designed specifically for remote instruction.
Accessible online and at no cost, Harmony supports on-site and online instruction for schools across the United States, including the ten largest school districts in the country. Look for new additions to the Harmony program in 2021, including all-new unit themes, updated lessons and activities, new content for out-of-school time, and optimizations to Harmony games and implementation training.
