Step by Step : Teacher’s Guide – Fifth Grade (Spanish)

Step by Step offers a series of practical lessons and support materials designed to be implemented in the classroom by the teacher. These lessons are based on a carefully chosen developmental perspective of middle childhood and adolescence, to fit the characteristics and needs of each age group or grade, from ages 6 through 17. The lessons are organized into three modules, six general skills and 18 specific skills. Step by Step focuses on six core life skills: self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, positive communication, determination, and responsible decision-making. These skills further equip children and adolescents with the tools they need to become engaged, caring, and resourceful members of their communities (socially responsible), govern themselves while balancing their interests with those of others (autonomous), and prevail in the face of adversity (resilient).
