March Content Update

Everyday Speech is proud to announce the launch of an all-new skill on the platform: Relationships for Middle and High Schoolers. This new skill features brand new units, including Getting Ready to Date, Dating, and Ending a Relationship. Each unit features age-appropriate videos, activities, and games for learners who have begun to show interest in romantic relationships. 

Dating etiquette involves a whole lot of social skills. It can be overwhelming thinking about all the rules, social cues, and nonverbal communication that go into navigating a relationship! Our new dating unit will support you in teaching skills related to communication, self-advocacy, and staying safe in relationships.

Plus, for our younger learners, don’t miss our new Pre-K and K materials on making introductions, using connected comments, staying on topic, lining up, and creating and respecting personal space. 

Let us know how your students feel about our new materials by tagging us on Instagram using @everydayspeech.
