Overall Review for Grade 2: 


Review Comments:

  • Healthy identification: everyone is unique with personal strengths and weaknesses.
  • Positive introduction to social and family relationships to include outside support to families such as civic organizations, religious organizations, child care providers, and community support organizations
  • Not clear how the teacher facilitates Presentation 2.3, Slide 6 for how to handle unpleasant feelings.
  • Seems to overemphasize the bad touching.

Curriculum Reviewed:

  • SOLs
  • Three PowerPoint Presentations
  • Supplemental List
