Primer Lesson Materials

  • Teachers will explicitly acknowledge the problem of stress and anxiety, and they will commit to providing a solution through ASSET. 
  • Students will understand the brain science of stress. 
  • Students will “take stock” of their stress responses and stressors in order to understand their stress patterns. 

PROTIP: Language in the ASSET curriculum provides a framework for teachers, administrators, and students to talk about stress and anxiety. Use language from this primer lesson as a way to support students. For example, students can use the hand motion of “flip- ping their lid” to non-verbally signal that they are stressed and need a moment to pause.
