How will Satchel Pulse help us track and improve students’ social emotional skills?
You'll use Skills to understand, track, and improve the social emotional skills of all your students. It starts with a universal screening that seamlessly gathers the skills data from a student self-assessment and teacher screener. Once the data is collected, you are able to pinpoint where improvements need to be made for each student. We'll automatically give recommendations for tiering and intervention grouping and suggested resources at the click of a button. This ensures that you can effectively target the right students, place them in appropriate groups, and provide them with the necessary resources to enhance their skills. Students will then be reassessed to measure improvements and track progress. With Skills, you will target the unique needs of every student, foster growth, and guide them toward future success.
With ready-made lessons for teachers to deliver in their classrooms, you'll use our Courses to provide CASEL-aligned content for your tier 1 students. Plus, we have intervention plans for your tier 2 and 3 students to target areas of growth. Our lessons library also contains tier 1, School-Connect curriculum for grades 6-12, ready to go anytime.
Your students will use our Futures portal to take ownership of their learning, which will be used in or out of school. Here, students will independently develop their skills based on their Skills data, providing them with a targeted, personalized learning journey.
When you don't have the resources to teach social-emotional skills, you'll use our Coaching service to provide virtual lessons to your students. Our experts will teach your students while they're supervised by their teachers, who will benefit from seeing social-emotional learning taught by experts. The most significant impacts of Coaching are the growth and use of skills learned during the sessions throughout other areas.
Putting Satchel Pulse into action to improve students’ social emotional skills
The universal screener in Skills is quick and easy to use, provides the most intuitive data, and can be completed multiple times a year. Using our student self-assessment and teacher screener, we recommend beginning screening at the start of the school year; however, it can be implemented anytime. Skill-level data will be used to tier all students automatically. Intervention groups will be put in place, and personalized improvement plans will be initiated based on the data. Lessons can be delivered to whole classes or in more targeted ways, like small groups or individually assigned using the resources in the library. Once the interventions have been completed, reassessment takes place to measure improvement and update skill levels, providing ongoing progress monitoring.
Our Futures portal can be accessed by students and offers a personalized, targeted skill development platform. Courses will be found here, along with Calm Space, which provides a variety of videos for young learners to use to wind down and relax when needed.
If you are unable to deliver the personalized learning journey for your students, we can offer Coaching, which will support the growth of your staff's skills while working directly with students' skill development.
By combining powerful software, a comprehensive curriculum, and the support of experts, we will provide you with a roadmap to help guide your students' social emotional growth.
Satchel Pulse delivers great data especially when you're trying to collect as much data as you can on a student to help with their academic success.
