Second Step

A Violence Prevention Curriculum
Preschool – Grade 4

Research shows that social and emotional learning is a key to academic achievement. Twenty years of research has shown that children need social and emotional competence to succeed in school. Students who are socially and emotionally skilled score higher on standardized tests, and social and emotional competence leads to greater academic competence over time.

Second Step: A Violence Prevention Curriculum is a prevention program that reduces problem behaviors in children and increases their level of social competence. It does this by teaching skills in empathy, impulse control and problem solving, and emotion/anger management.

The engaging photo-lesson cards show adults and children expressing emotions and solving problems in real-life situations. Lively classroom videos also spark discussion, enriching students’ learning of important social and emotional skills. Second Step lessons provide tools to help children become socially skilled and develop strong bonds to school.
