Research Press Publishers is proud to announce the publication of Power Up: Gamification Tools for Social and Emotional Learning.
This engaging new book, written for counselors and mental health practitioners, supports social and emotional learning through gamification: The use of games and activities to improve engagements in real life activities and encourage positive interactive behaviors. Dr. Jaime Dombrowski has created a resource that makes it fun for kids to learn the core areas of SEL: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
The easy-to-use program offers step-by-step guidance on each lesson and the flexibility to tailor the program to each students’ needs. The program includes a complete curriculum for teaching the five core SEL skills in brief daily sessions across 30 lessons. This resource contains game boards, icons, and classroom-display skill cutouts — all beautifully designed and ready to use. Some of the visual appealing and practical, supplementary materials are available via download on the Research Press website.
In praising Power Up, Ashley Sanders, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, states: “Power Up is a fun and engaging curriculum that uses a student’s natural interests to interact with appealing visuals and learn through play to enhance vital skills for their academic, emotional, and social success.”
