Please join Joy Randel as she chats with Dr. Matia Finn-Stevenson, Yale Research Scientist and Director of the Yale University’s School of the 21st Century. Matia, along with North Shore Animal League America and the Cesar Millan Foundation, created the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum.
The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is a new, innovative program that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of Mutt-i-grees®, or shelter dogs. The Curriculum teaches social and emotional skills and is unique in its bridging of humane education and the emerging field of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). In a series of easily implemented lessons, children learn critical skills that will help them in school, at home, and later on in the workplace and in their interactions with people and, of course, with animals. Integrated throughout the Curriculum are feature lessons on dog behavior developed with Cesar Millan.
The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum was developed by The Pet Savers Foundation, in collaboration with the Yale University School of the 21st Century, and was graciously funded by The Millan Foundation. It is currently in over 900 schools in 28 states. Click Here for more information.
