A GIFT OF HOPE AND CHANGE
Dreamline is celebrating the holidays and the power of a dream you can believe in by offering a FREE Dream Path SEL digital subscription to you and those you know using this code: DPSEL23.
Use code DPSEL23. This link is not on our main website.
The offer is good until February 1, 2023, the birthday of Langston Hughes, and the launch date for the 2022-23 Dreamline season. Teachers who accept by February 1 will have full access to Dream Path SEL curriculum materials for the rest of the 2022-23 school year. We’ll conclude in June with a global celebration hosted in Philadelphia and including online participants from everywhere sharing the dreams they believe in.
Dream Path SEL develops self and global awareness, visions of the future, and the Social-Emotional Learning skills to realize those visions.
Our Board of Directors authorized this because in the 2022-23 year they want every friend of Dreamline to be able to experience the flexible and transformative impact of this Dreamline curriculum – with its media-rich, authentic, activity-based approach to helping students reflect on themselves and the world, find a vision that compels them, and broaden their global perspective.
Using art, writing, technology, and community-building, Dream Path SEL helps you find a dream you believe in because that changes everything.
The offer also includes the assessment surveys built into the Dream Path SEL program that measure changes in empathy, agency, belonging, and pro-social behaviors.
Already, Cook-Wissahickon Middle School in Philadelphia, has started the 40 mini-lesson version of Dream Path SEL with 200 students in grades 5-8. 3rd and 4th graders at Howard Gardener School in Scranton, PA will start Dream Path SEL in January in a 5-session experience, and 9th – 12th graders at McDowell High School in Erie, PA are starting a teacher-customized Dream Path SEL program later this month.

Dreamline Art Teacher Forming Community Around Her Work
Longtime Dreamline teacher Joy Waldinger has a newsletter you might want to check out. Here’s what she shared with us:
J. Eliza Wall (Joy Elisabeth Waldinger) is a Philadelphia artist, writer, filmmaker, and art educator. She believes that art is a powerful tool that can generate change and healing on a local and global level. Her short films have won awards in national and international film festivals and she has been published in a variety of literary magazines. In 2020, she published Like the Sun Holds the Moon: A Children’s Book, which addresses themes of separation and divorce, and for the May 2022 Lunar Eclipse, her book Like the Sun Holds the Moon: A Novel was published by Little Creek Press. Her newest children’s book (TRASH CRAB) will be coming out on Earth Day 2023! Sign up for her newsletter if you want a little more magic in your life to weave some order from the chaos. Her magic section is modeled after her Teaching Pedagogy. The Head, Heart, and Hands Pedagogy guides her art education practice since it integrates all three domains of learning: cognitive (head), affective (heart), and experiential (hands). Her previous collaboration with Dreamline has inspired her personal creative journey.
