Social-Emotional Learning Starts with Us:
Strategies for Teachers and Students
We can’t teach what we don’t know. Teachers, administrators, and support staff are most effective when they understand and develop their personal social-emotional capacities before addressing students. Research has shown that SEL increases academic achievement, improves behavior, and contributes to the overall sense of well-being for students and teachers.
This dynamic session will provide participants with stand-alone SEL activities as well as engaging strategies that can be integrated into the content areas for grades K-12.
DURATION: 25 MINUTES
