The full program has 12 lessons per grade level (grades 1-8), each designed to take 30-50 minutes. The lessons are designed to be taught during literacy blocks of time, school counselor advisory periods, or other interdisciplinary periods. In addition each lesson is aligned to all state and national literacy and social and emotional learning standards, as well as other cross-curricular standards, such as Social Studies and Health.

Each complete sample lesson includes:

  1. A literacy-based lesson plan from our Teacher Guide
  2. The real-life story on which the lesson is based from the book:
    • Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be (grades 1-6 (elementary school program))
    • Chicken Soup for the Soul: Create Your Best Future (grades 6-8 (middle school program))
  3. The Student Journal pages for the lesson

There are two versions of Grade 6—Elementary and Middle School.
