Our Curriculum

The mission of Casey’s Clubhouse™ is to offer holistic, integrated curriculum and support materials that make real differences in the lives of children and families using Best Practices as their guide. We use a combination of research and technology, and pull from psychology, education, and neuroscience as we look to support a whole mind-body system rather than just pieces and parts.

We teach 6 SECTIONS of skills...

Regulation

Regulation is the ability to monitor and manage your energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors based on the environment, people, and objects in your surroundings, leading to greater self-control.

Awareness

Awareness is the ability to notice what's going on outside and inside of you. Awareness of factors like the environment and people around you, as well as your energy and how you feel, help you better direct your intentions and author your life.

Determination

Determination is the ability to focus your energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors toward a certain goal while facing both the comfortable and uncomfortable, exciting and boring, and positive and negative sides of the journey.

Problem-Solving

Problem Solving is the ability to react and respond to problems by way of calmly assessing and applying fair solutions, using effective communication and cooperation.

Confidence

Confidence is the ability to rely on, trust, and believe in yourself and your power in your life and in this world. This sureness leads to greater assertion for yourself and empathy for others. Confidence is the ability to rely on, trust, and believe in others, too.

Mastery

Mastery is the dedication to learn, practice, and perform something so confidently that you can teach another. It is an ongoing practice rather than a goal to achieve.

explored through 6 CONCEPTS...

SCALE-ING

We use the idea of scales to learn how to balance our interactions, energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

AUTHORING

We use the idea of writing, narrating, and creating our own story to learn how to increase our awareness and "edit" our interactions, energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

TWO SIDES

We use the idea of a two-sided coin to think about how our determination is affected by positive and negative factors and how that connection changes our interactions, energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

FOUR-SQUARE

We use the idea of four-square, a familiar children's game, to show how small and big problems interact with frequency to define a problem and lead us to solutions for our interactions, energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

BILL OF RIGHTS

We use the idea of our bill of rights to better understand both our rights and responsibilities in friendship so we can gain the confidence we need to expect and deliver fair interactions, while balancing our energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

YOU TEACH ME

We use the idea of You Teach Me as we close out the year to encourage club members to teach us their best understanding of lessons involving interactions, energy, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

...guided by 5 PILLARS of learning.


Five rotating approaches are woven into the curriculum to integrate a varied learning experience. 

These approaches reflect the process of how people grow and change.
ME
How does this section and lesson relate to me as a unique individual?

For example, my personality is continuing to develop but my talents, limitations, and my preferences affect my mastery. 
ENERGY
How does this section and lesson relate to my body’s energy?
 
For example, my awareness skills are influenced by my energy. If my scale tends towards high or low energy, then these skills could really help me!
EMOTION
How does this section and lesson relate to my feelings?

For example, my determination skills are affected by my fear, anger, and happiness.
THOUGHTs
How does this section and lesson relate to my thoughts?

For example, my problem-solving skills are prompted by my self-talk.
BEHAVIOR
How does this section and lesson relate to my actions?

For example, my social confidence is realized partly through my social risk taking.
the overview

30 Weeks:
30 Stories, 30 Lessons, and 30 Homeactivities.

Casey’s Clubhouse curriculum is a 30-lesson journey divided into six sections. It builds upon our six essential skills which are matched with six distinctive concepts. Each section rotates through five approaches to learning, to create our foundational pillars: ME, Energy, Emotions, Thoughts, and Behaviors. These repeated approaches reinforce the concepts and honor the different needs of different kinds of learners.

Every week, students watch a story from Casey's Adventures, followed by a guided lesson. Students then complete a homeactivity relating to the lesson. 

STORIES: Casey's Adventures follows the life of Casey, a 4th-Grade boy who overcomes social challenges like making friends, problem-solving with friends, and handling bullying. 

LESSONS: The weekly lesson breaks down each corresponding chapter and teaches the social emotional skills that Casey himself learns and practices. Casey provides an example of the topic by demonstrating its application in a real world situation. Each weekly lesson creates a structure to our 30-Week Curriculum, designed to layer learning while reinforcing basic interpersonal and group skills as students discuss Casey's experiences with one another. 

HOMEACTIVITIES: A worksheet-style activity is sent home with each student to reinforce what was learned in the lesson. These homeactivities encourage students to include family members in their journey of social emotional learning and share what Casey learned that week.
