Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Time & Location
About the Event
•This session makes the case for taking a deliberate approach to the "hidden curriculum" already being taught. Through a five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, you’ll learn the whys and howsof:
•Building students' sense of identity and their belief in their ability to learn, overcome challenges, and influence the world around them.
•Helping students identify, describe, and regulate their emotional responses.
•Promoting the skills of cognitive regulation critical to decision making and problem solving.
•Fostering students' social skills—including teamwork and sharing—and their ability to establish and repair relationships.
•Equipping students to becoming active and involved citizens.
•Our children's social and emotional development is too important to be an add-on or an afterthought, too important to be left to chance. This integrated approach to SEL empowers every teacher to help students develop skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.
