Similarity Training For 
Schools (K-12)

This is a curricular framework written specifically from The Third Option Similarity Training. It adapts the same principles in the six sessions of the Similarities Training for organizations. This supplemental program may be used to augment your Social Studies (or other) curriculum, and it reflects key components of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) framework.

| 3-5

Students will engage in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse partners. They’ll be able to explain their own ideas and understanding in light of discussions and share their own experiences to present in an organized manner. In addition, students will be able to speak in complete sentences to provide requested detail.

| 9-12

A downloadable workbook that can be completed on a computer or phone. We will give you the tools to ask hard questions, start the conversation, and honor the unseen in others so that you can step into unity.

| K-2

This curriculum teaches both in the areas of comprehension and collaboration. Students will be encouraged to participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade-level topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

| 6-8

Designed for scholars in the pre-adolescent stage of development. Activities are constructed to engage middle school scholars in interesting yet challenging ways around questions of similarity and unity.  More attention is given to the discussion of the program's racial/cultural themes, and deeper focus is placed on individual reflection for self-growth. Provides an incremental bridge and logical alignment between the elementary and high school courses.
