The Open Circle Program, designed by the Wellesley Centers for Women, has been teaching social competency skills at Taunton Elementary School for three years. Andy Inman, the head of the program at the school, teaches students about community, responsibility, cooperation, respect and assertiveness. Inman says of the program, “It helps social and emotional growth an’ the result of that is a better learning environment. It’s kind of a neat thing because it provides a common language for the school.” When taking the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System, the Open Circle Program also benefits its students. The problem solving steps, focusing techniques and stress coping skills all prove useful when taking the test.
