Leading and Learning Through SEL Implementation
In order for our students to achieve at their highest academic levels and be fully prepared for learning, living, and leading to their fullest potential, it is essential that they are placed at the center of education. Through the alignment of policy and practice, we can establish a Whole Child environment in which social emotional learning is fostered and developed.
In this full-day session, we’ll examine the five components of social emotional learning (SEL) and the academic benefits of a fully-aligned and integrated SEL culture. Participants will discuss and participate in activities that centers on critical considerations when embarking on SEL implementation.
Through experiential activities, attendees will explore four ways in which to integrate SEL into educational practices so that every classroom and building becomes a social, emotional, and academic learning community in which everyone feels included, valued, and accepted. Though deep dialogue after the activities, we will delve into the interpersonal aspects of SEL reflection.
Finally, participants will have an opportunity to begin conducting an SEL assessment to investigate areas of strength and opportunities for growth, resulting in a basis for a viable plan of action towards SEL implementation.
Join us for a day of deepening our commitment to student-centered educational practices, sharing high-quality resources, and assessing progress towards the goal of “Every Child, Every Day.”
