This course focuses on the basics of helping students develop pertinent skills regarding Emotional Intelligence (EQ). Traditional IQ testing is not the best indicator of who will be successful in life. Rather, EQ has been shown to have a higher correlation with future achievement.

Students must learn to be optimistic, delay gratification, control anger, read social situations accurately and show empathy, which are skills that can be taught in a classroom setting.
