Social Emotional Learning
In this webinar, you will learn how to attend to your students' social-emotional needs.
Event Date: Tuesday, January, 11, 2022
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM EST
Students need a safe and compassionate environment to thrive and learn. As teachers, we have traditionally focused on first supporting our students’ academic success. However, we now know that attending to the social-emotional needs of our students is absolutely critical to maximizing their potential. Bring yourself up to speed on current practice and research in this area and learn what strategies to consider as you approach this important work.
After participating in the webinar, you will:
- Recognize that student well-being directly impacts student success
- Learn how deep listening to individual student stories informs your practice
- Better understand how the use of trauma-sensitive strategies can support your students
- Understand the importance of explicitly teaching kindness and empathy
- Understand the need to provide a relevant and culturally responsive curriculum for your students
- Use the “compassionate systems iceberg model” as a lens through which to explore and understand the needs and perspectives of your students
Who should attend:
Educators who are interested in learning more about social-emotional learning and practical strategies to support student well-being.
Participants will receive our eBook, which will include checklists, resources and tools to support you to address student well-being. You will also receive a certificate of completion.
$99 + tax for one session
