Pupils and students are returning to schools after the summer break and ČOSIV is launching the pilot phase of the 4R methodologies focusing on the development of social and emotional skills. However, back in August, teachers from the three pilot schools gathered for training in the seven methodologies (there are dedicated methodologies for different grades of elementary and secondary schools) and the subject matter covered. The methodologies focus on developing emotional literacy and personal strengths, skills necessary to cope with challenging situations and problem-solving, stress management, the ability to ask for help, gender and identity, and positive relationships. Targeted support to develop pupils’ and students’ skills in these areas has proven to have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing and to reduce risky and challenging behaviour and the tendency to resort to gender-based violence.
These methodologies are currently piloted in two primary schools and one secondary school in Prague and Most. The pilot phase will extend throughout the entire academic year 2022/2023. Subsequently, we will update the individual methodologies using the revised Framework Curricula. The final version of the methodologies will be made available at the end of the calendar year 2023. However, our team has made an overview of the individual methodologies available for free downloading and, shortly, we will organize a unique seminar dedicated to the 4R methodologies presenting their main objectives, key principles of their use, and individual activities
