Chicken Soup for the Soul Hallway Heroes is proud to be an
Evidence-Based, CASEL-endorsed SEL program. You’re probably thinking,
“Well, that sounds impressive, but what does that all mean? It means
that in an independent study, students using Hallway Heroes increased
their SEL skills at a nearly 5 times greater rate than those not using
the program. Moreover, SEL skills increased across all 5 SEL
competencies. You can read the entire Evidence
Based Study now.
Not long after we received the results of this study did we submit Hallway Heroes to the Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) for their endorsement. Not only did they endorse us, but they chose us to be part of their SELect program — CASEL’s highest rating. You can read their review of our program and learn more about CASEL SELect programs by visiting https://casel.org/hallway-heroes/
So you see that we’re evidence-based, and you see that we’re CASEL-endorsed. But where do you see SEL in Hallway Heroes? The answer: everywhere! Hallway Heroes was developed using the highly successful 7E learning cycle and instructional model. In each lesson, you’ll find these elements: engage, explore, explain, elaborate, evaluate, elicit and extend. And in each of these elements you’ll find SEL — for every lesson in every grade.
