Angela Watson is a National Board Certified Educator, with eleven years of classroom teaching experience and over a decade of experience as a K-12 instructional coach. She began developing this curriculum in 2023 in response to the growing need to help students focus their attention and manage their time and energy. Each unit is developed and released for a beta tester group of high schools (spring 2023) and a beta tester group with middle schools (fall of 2023), with elementary beta groups beginning in winter 2024.
There are 6 curriculum units for middle school (pre-teens/grades 6-8) and 6 curriculum units for high school (teenagers/grades 9-12). Elementary resources are coming in 2024.
Yes! The curriculum line designed for teenagers may be used at the high school level for younger teens, or for older teens to help them experience success in their freshmen and sophomore years of college.
This curriculum line is perfect for college-level study skills classes and 101 level classes that teach students how to be successful in a university setting.
These units are designed to facilitate productivity and deepen student understanding in EVERYTHING they learn, both in school and outside of it. These habits of mind will support students in reading comprehension and writing, along with scientific and mathematical thinking. There are several opportunities in each unit to have students practice applying what they are learning about productivity to your usual curriculum and lessons.
Yes! We offer in-person and virtual professional development to support you in implementing the curriculum. There are also mentoring and coaching packages available.
Email [email protected] and tell us about your needs. We'll put together several package options for you along with quotes.
Yes! Any group setting will work: homeroom, advisory periods, study hall periods, before/after school programs, group tutoring, etc.
No, there is guided instruction in every lesson that the teacher facilitates, and multiple opportunities for students to learn with a partner and group. A self-guided version for individual students (in the form of a journal) will be available in 2024.
The first (free) unit, Foundations of Flow, has 5 lessons. All other units have 10 lessons.
Most lessons take 15-30 minutes. The only exception are lessons that guide students to apply productivity practices to your curriculum, meaning students will be working on your usual activities, concepts, and skills during the implementation of the Finding Flow lessons. (You can see an example of how this works in Lesson 2 of the free unit, Foundations of Flow.)
Any way that fits best into your curriculum! You can implement one lesson each day, one lesson each week, or 2-3 each week.
Currently, the Finding Flow Solutions curriculum is available only through the Truth for Teachers website. You can pay securely there through Shopify with credit card or Google Pay.
