Brand New Seminar on Social-Emotional Learning!

This 5-hour asynchronous seminar offers SEL strategies for all educators

Growing up today is not easy. Children’s bodies and brains are rapidly growing and changing. They are assailed with new ideas, technology and peer/social/media influences daily. Many students today are distracted, under immense pressure and suffer from mental health issues more than ever before. Before students can be successful academically, their social and emotional needs must be met. Social-emotional learning (SEL) is a critical part of a child’s development as it is the process by which they acquire and apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes to increase self-awareness and self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making. SEL focuses on the competencies that underscore one’s ability to be available to learn. Nurturing students’ social and emotional development will help them acquire skills to effectively deal with stress. Students who can manage their emotions, control their impulses, focus their attention, and calm themselves will be able to learn and achieve academically. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL): Teaching the Whole Child provides an excellent overview of SEL and offers many evidence based SEL strategies that all staff can embed directly within any learning moment.
