‘Sesame Street’ Heads Back to School

The two companies will offer research-based “Sesame Street” branded content to pre-kindergarten and elementary schools across the U.S.

The initial program will promote social-emotional learning skills such as empathy and self-awareness and resilience and will be a part of McGraw-Hill’s Wonders literacy program. Content includes circle-time videos and lessons, teacher’s resources and weekly parent newsletters.

“Developing effective social-emotional learning skills at an early age provides a strong foundation for children to excel in school and move on to future success in life,” says Marty Lange, senior vice president and chief product and operating officer, School Group, McGraw-Hill. “Collaborating with Sesame Workshop represents a unique opportunity to work with a pioneer in educational media and social-emotional learning content for young learners while improving learning outcomes and transforming the school-to-home learning experience. By working together, we can facilitate even stronger connections between teachers, learners and families in the service of learning.”

All

curricula will be available in English and Spanish as will appeal to multiple levels of learning and support.

The “Sesame Street” program is set to roll out in fall 2019.
