Curriculum Training & Support
Teaching the Be CALM Curriculum
Upon completion of the Foundational Training and enrollment in or completion of the Mindfulness Practice Series, participants are eligible to engage in a one-day training to teach the Be CALM curriculum. To support program implementation during program delivery, bimonthly virtual support meetings are offered in a professional learning community.
What is the Evidence?
The Be CALM Program has been delivered to over 2000 North Carolina secondary students from predominantly rural areas. Two evaluations suggest that trained teachers increase use of support strategies with students and experience decreased teaching stress. Students report being better able to regulate their emotions,cope with stress, and resolve conflict. Teachers also identified improvements in students' prosocial behaviors and academic motivation.
