Since piloted in 2006, Creative Education has provided Social Emotional Learning programs to over 26,000 youth in public schools throughout Delaware!

Seasons of Respect is a hands-on, interactive program that focuses on helping children learn how giving respect creates a safe learning environment that can lead to improved self-esteem, confidence, and academic success. As a matter of fact, after participating in the workshop:

  • 93% of students stated that they now understand the difference between respectful behavior and disrespectful.
  • 90% of the students now believe that we all need to behave respectfully towards each other.
  • 75% would like the rest of their school to experience a Creative Education workshop.

This character education program supports efforts to improve school climate, enhances the Positive Behavior Support Programs (PBS) in schools, and is a bully prevention tool to assist schools in addressing Delaware’s anti bullying laws.

Seasons of Respect workshops incorporate a variety of approaches to creatively teach children. We emphasize the following lessons, which can serve as a key to success for our students:

the difference between respectful behavior, which everyone deserves, and feeling of respect for someone, which is earned

how it feels to respect and be respected

the importance of positive emotions in their classrooms and behaviors they will engage to in order to support these emotions

choices and consequences of actions and reactions

the importance of listening to others

techniques children can use to discourage bullying in their schools

the impact of reaching outside yourself to appreciate and help others

strategies for working together to avoid or resolve peer-to-peer conflict and prevent bullying

The workshop provides an on-going program where classmates practice respect and recognize each other throughout the year for their respectful behavior.

Being very aware of the limited time available in classrooms for additional activities, SOR is making certain that its activities are tied to State ELA and American School Counselor Association standards so that time spent does not detract from the goals of teachers and counselors.
