Teacher FAQs

  • What is included with the Free Teacher Trial?

    The Free Trial includes limited login access to the materials in our Emotional ABCs Lesson List and My Board sections, and all 20 Emotional ABCs Basics Workshops. Each Workshop has links to all resources, including interactive online activities, videos, and printables. Check out the Emotional ABCs Classroom for more details.

  • Is this program evidence based?

    Yes. Emotional ABCs finished a yearlong study (2019/2020) of Emotional ABCs Classroom at eight diverse schools across the USA. The results showed that Emotional ABCs significantly improved participating students’ social emotional competencies, even within a single year, as compared to students in control classrooms. See Scientific Studies for more details.

  • What grade-level does Emotional ABCs target?

    Our Teacher program presents the same content for any grade level and is aimed primarily at K-3. In addition, the material's flexibility to be scaffolded allows it to be utilized by other grades, as well as special education classrooms. (For example, teachers use the curriculum in more than 38,000 special education classrooms across the USA). Counselors also utilize Emotional ABCs school-wide for group and individual instruction.

    Our multi-year Premium programs are designed as three-year consecutive curriculums for grades 1, 2, and 3. However, schools can and do use the Premium programs for other grade pairings or merely for a single year depending on their specific needs.

  • Does Emotional ABCs require teacher training?

    The Emotional ABCs Classroom curriculums and Workshops are specifically structured to be self-evident to a professional educator. Emotional ABCs provides complete educational scaffolding with ample resources, example dialogue, and clear goals and objectives so that a teacher can easily integrate the curriculum into their day. However, our program does provide a comprehensive Teacher Guide, a Curriculum Guide, “How To” Tutorial videos, and Teacher Training to give Educators additional assistance

  • Is Emotional ABCs an online or in-class program?

    Our Premium subscriptions are designed most specifically for “in class” teacher-led instruction, but the Premium Group program expands to include 30 individual student sign-ins and two teacher sign-ins per classroom. This can make a substantial difference to the quality of the learning that students may receive; in addition to being taught in the classroom or via screenshare by an educator, students can access the full consecutive curriculum from home and complete online assignments and reviews.

  • Can I record the videos and share them with my class?

    No. You may not copy, record, share or distribute our videos or links to any of our content, or record any part of the program or record yourself using the program.

  • I can’t sign up all of my students. How do I do that?

    The Premium Single User is a single-user, teacher-led subscription. It does not allow you to add more students. To give multiple students access to the program, consider our Premium Group version. The Premium Group version includes 30 student sign-ins and two Teacher Accounts per classroom, and students can access individual accounts from school or home. Check out Teachers & Schools to learn more about our Premium Group subscription.

  • How does your program align with the requirements I need to meet for state standards?

    Our program follows the guidelines established by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the leading policy development group for SEL curriculums. Emotional ABCs teaches all five Social Emotional Learning competencies included in CASEL’s guidelines: Self-Awareness, Social-Awareness, Self-Management, Responsible Decision-Making and Relationship Skills. Additionally, the Emotional ABCs curriculum may meet state standards in Language Arts and Performing Arts.
