    Default Naming Contest for SC Social-Emotional

    For everyone who reads, posts, & lurks:

    We are working on the new Simply Classical Social-Emotional programs. These will be ~14-week stand-alone programs that can be taught over summers, alongside a semester of SC levels, or whenever needed to accompany any academic program for all age levels. After the readiness level, each program includes practical lessons alongside some of the most beloved and important MP-selected children's literature not already taught in SC.

    We need a title!

    For obvious reasons, this will not work:
    Simply Classical Social-Emotional Awareness, Social Perception, Social Skills, Health, Safety, & Manners


    Ideas?

    Post your best idea(s) to this thread.

    Winner receives $10 off the first purchase of one of these new SC programs. Please enter soon, because the formatter is using my unwieldy title and would love to switch to your better one!

    ...ANNNNND Michelle has answered for me... 😜

    I like Jen's 👍

    But I'll take a(nother) stab at it:

    Simply Classical: Skills To Last A Lifetime
    "Do not let the past disturb you; leave everything in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and begin again with joy."
    ~ St Mother Teresa of Calcutta

    "Pray, hope, and don't worry."

    No clear winner yet. Keep thinking! We would like to choose by early next week.

    Tips:
    1. Not a subtitle
    We will probably not use SC: subtitle, because the book is already Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child.

    In other words, it would be more likely in the format of the "Simply Classical Curriculum."

    2. Needs to be clearly understood as being taught for social-emotional development, rather than for a primarily academic purpose.

    3. Alliteration is not essential.

    4. Each person may submit as many ideas as she would like. We're looking for brainstorming here.

    5. All suggestions so far are instructive to us!

    Thank you!

    Reading back over Cheryl's not a subtitle comment, mine probably are more subtitles

    One of them could become "Etiquette and Emotional Enrichment for the Simply Classical student" or "Simply Classical's Guide to Learning Life Skills through Literature". Different levels could have a cute subtitle on what they cover.

    Good luck!

    Susan P, would you please email me, so I can ask you a question in some detail:
    cherylswope@memoriapress.com

    And no, "all of the above" is not a winning answer!


    To all --
    We have narrowed it down. If I can find Tanya, we may have an announcement soon.

    Skills Enrichment?

    Social Enrichment?

    Social Skills Enrichment?

    Lifelong Enrichment?

    Continuing Enrichment?

    I like "Enrichment". That's spot on.

    We have a winner!

    Myself & Others:
    Lessons for Social Understanding, Habits, & Manners


    A Simply Classical Resource


    (c) All Rights Reserved.


    Yes, several of us at MP loved JessicaP (pickandgrin)'s subtitle so much, we made it the title.

    JessicaP, you are the winner and will receive the $10 off your first purchase of any level. We will tell the MP sales staff, so they will be ready for you when the time comes. Thank you!


    Details:
    1) We cannot easily use "Enrichment," even though this is a good term. MP Enrichment is widely known to be K-2 art, music, science, history, literature, so we sidestepped it for this SC title.
    2) This morning Tanya suggested that we place "Simply Classical" in lighter letters on the book, rather than in the title, because this program will appeal to those outside MP/SC and even outside "classical." Instantly this gave us greater flexibility, and we could then continue to draw from the remainder of your suggestions.
    3) Both Martin Cothran & our copy editor Jen wanted a subtitle to explain clearly what the lessons will teach, yet one sufficiently broad terms to cover the content of all four levels. This was wise.
    4) Everyone's suggestions at MP and on this forum helped guide the final title, so thank you to all!
    5) I have seen the formatted first draft of the first level and am very hopeful that you will like having these lessons in your hands.

    Now the real work continues....
