Description: Join us for an exciting opportunity to connect, discover, create, and share! Our 3-part Social Emotional Learning (SEL) series will provide you with an opportunity to take a deeper dive into some of the critical concepts of SEL. Connect with colleagues and providers to develop a collaborative understanding of the current and valuable Social Emotional Learning concepts, teaching/thinking frameworks, strategies, and activities for engaging students. Engage in robust discussion around key concepts and hands-on application with takeaways for immediate application in the classroom. Opportunities will be provided to practice developing lessons that integrate both academic and SEL learning targets. 

Do I need to attend all three sessions? It is strongly recommended that you attend all three sessions, each session will build off the previous. Attendance to session three requires attendance of session 1 and/ or session 2. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Empower students to define the connection between the self-concept, self awareness, and self esteem and how lagging skills in any of these areas can result in mental health issues for students
  • Establish strategies to help students learn how problem solving involves self regulation and executive function
  • Explore tools and activities I can use to engage my students in to teach and practice SEL skills
  • Using one or more of the strategies explored, describe what you can do differently tomorrow
