Product Overview: This new edition of the Superflex® Curriculum package is part two in the Superflex series. (Part one is You Are a Social Detective!). For over a decade, our practical, motivating, and kid-friendly Superflex Curriculum has been a core resource for teaching students with different learning styles about flexibility, self-awareness, social interpretation, metacognition, executive functions, and self-regulation. This updated and expanded 2nd edition Superflex Curriculum Package augments the available resources and enhances support for educators, therapists, and parents through a suite of print and digital teaching materials. The 25 interactive quests that make up the curriculum help students transform abstract thinking into concrete strategies as they learn prosocial and proactive ways to figure out how people work, learn, and play together from a social and emotional perspective.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Do I need to purchase this new edition if I have the 1st edition of the book?

Answer: The new curriculum is completely different from the previous edition. The teaching approach is different and the Unthinkables are now UnthinkaBots with Bot powers. This edition has supplemental digital content and is greatly expanded. In other words, this new edition provides many significant updates while also refining how to teach the core principles defined in the first edition. The interactive lessons foster inquiry-based learning with hands-on, multisensory lessons and a suite of both print and digital teaching tools which can be used in classrooms, clinics, community centers, and homes. So, while the answer is usually, “depends”, in this case the answer is that the content of the curriculum is different enough that it’s worth the new purchase.

Question: Will an eBook version of this 2nd Edition package be offered?

Answer: We do not plan to offer this product as an eBook due to its multiple parts.
