The Cool To Be Me programme explores the developmental theme of identity and speaks directly to this developmental need through a focused programme COOL TO BE ME.

These unique aspects of this programme create a reflective and transformative and easy-to-implement learning opportunity for learners, educators, and parents:

  • Experiential learning cycle is the vehicle for learning (game/activity; reflection; generalisation; application)
  • Simple analogies and games allow learners to understand and apply more complex ideas
  • Addresses critical developmental themes while developing core SEL competencies
  • Easy-to-follow Educator Manual with clear lesson plans
  • Easy to fit into busy timetables
  • Thought provoking, reflective and transformative journaling for learners
  • Family discussions to engage parents and children in SEL.

It addresses the identity crisis that occurs during adolescence with the themes of self-esteem (Who am I? Why does anybody like me?); self-worth (Why I am important or valued?) and mutual respect (Why should I respect you if you don’t respect me?). It is also very normal for a teen or pre-teen to answer these questions and formulate their identity based on three external observations:

  1. What I look like?
  2. What I achieve?
  3. What I own?

It is a critical time in their development to shift the way in which they see themselves (identity) from an external perspective (Points 1, 2, and 3 above which are transient and not always within their control) to an internal perspective that focuses on aspects of self that are eternal and create a strong, resilient foundation for lasting self-esteem, self-worth, and mutual respect.
