The Apperson Back-to-School eBook combines some of the best teacher-provided strategies, tips and activities and condenses them into an informative, organized, easy-to-read PDF file teachers can download, print and share.

Some of the eBook’s highlights include:

  • Back-to-school must-haves for the classroom
  • Tips on how to build strong relationships with students and parents from day one
  • Seven ideas to make test prep fun
  • 10 books to help students understand their feelings
  • Classroom activities that teach social-emotional skills and promote positive attitudes
  • Free resources and tips on nutrition, organizational strategies, apps, and more

The Back-to-School eBook is part of Apperson’s ongoing work to support educators, administrators and out-of-school-time organizations as they implement academic and social-emotional assessment solutions that inform instruction and help schools meet the upcoming, required benchmarks of the recently passed ESSA legislation. With robust data capture and reporting capabilities, Apperson’s products and services address the needs of the whole child, providing the measurement schools need to create a healthy, positive learning environment for students.

As a proven leader in providing academic testing solutions, Apperson leverages and builds upon this experience by offering an online assessment and intervention tool called Evo Social & Emotional (Evo SEL) to help educators measure students’ SEL skills and to provide strategies for instruction and intervention. Evo SEL features the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA), a strengths-based assessment system designed to screen students for social and emotional competencies.

“One of our goals at Apperson is to support teachers in their work to teach the whole child,” said Bill Apperson, chairman of the board of Apperson. “Teachers have one of the toughest jobs in the world. This eBook is full of great resources that we hope will make their lives a little easier and get the school year off to a healthy, happy start for students.”
