French PATHS® Now Available for Pre-Order. Ships in the Fall.
AVONDALE, AZ — The award-winning, evidence-based PATHS® social emotional learning (SEL) program is now available in French. Translated by native French speakers to ensure language fidelity, it is designed for dual language classrooms, immersion schools, or French-only instruction. The French version of the PATHS® program is the same high-quality SEL curriculum used by elementary schools around the world.
“As an educator, I’ve seen first hand the impact that equitable access the PATHS® program can have on students’ social and emotional development,” said Anna-Lisa Mackey, CEO of PATHS Program LLC. “As a Canadian I’m thrilled to be able to provide the same researched-based curriculum to French-speaking classrooms.”
SEL can help schools mitigate students’ learning and social developmental loss incurred during COVID-related shutdowns and remote learning. As a CASEL SELect and Blueprints Model social emotional learning program, the PATHS® program has proven behavioral and academic outcomes such as increased prosocial behavior, improved academic achievement and test scores, and reduced teacher burnout and turnover.
PATHS® program classroom implementation packages include everything teachers need to implement and integrate the lessons into their classrooms, including online training and an 18-month subscription to PATHS+ Premium, a member portal with exclusive content for educators. The French preschool/kindergarten and grades 1-2 are now available for pre-order with shipping dates in the fall, and grades 3-5 are planned for 2022.
The PATHS® program is published by PATHS Program LLC, author and publisher of the Emozi® SEL program for middle school. As an evidence-informed program, Emozi® is designed for the unique development needs of today’s young teens and includes family communications in English, French, and Spanish.
