Project TEAM and Cards In The House

 

Project TEAM is a holistic, school-wide program for social-emotional learning (SEL). It uses six SEL foundations and relatable characters to provide a common language for staff and students.

Use these Cards In the House to start meaningful conversations and engage students in team-building activities related to the concepts of the Project TEAM SEL foundations.

Our Characters

Students are introduced to the six characters, who age with them. Each character represents one of the SEL foundations, as well as a career pathway. Further, they are all connected to a different part of the House.

Career Pathways
The characters help bring the SEL foundations to life, as well as help students see how important these concepts are for their futures.

The House
Students and staff use the SEL foundations to “build” the Project TEAM house together. They come to understand that the house is a place of unity and respect, where everyone is accepted and belongs. They need each other to build this TEAM house.

Are You In The House?
This becomes the slogan for the school meaning everyone has to do their part to help make sure the house is a nurturing and happy place to learn.
