Social & Emotional Learning NOW
May 18 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
Create a community of care
Academic learning may be the explicit focus of schooling, but what teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we chose, and the skills we prioritize all influence how our students think, see themselves, interact with content and with others, and assert themselves in the world.
During the Virtual Social and Emotional Learning NOW Institute we will focus on key social and emotional learning, but we apply it to educators, students, and schools. In the past, SEL efforts were targeted to students but schoolwide efforts and supporting colleagues is critical. In this session, we focus on creating a community of care, supporting identities and belonging, building on strengths, emotional regulation, resilience, relational trust, as well as individual and collective efficacy.
Together, we can support each other and our students’ well-being and academic growth.
