For many district and school leaders preparing for back-to-school in today’s context, social-emotional learning (SEL) will be integral to student success. Join this webinar to hear superintendents share their experiences and concrete strategies to strengthen and support students’ social-emotional well-being in schools.
Social Emotional Learning
Understanding emotions is an even more critical aspect of teaching and learning when schools are shuttered, sometimes statewide, due to crises like COVID-19. How do we manage anxiety and build relationships while we are forced to socially distance ourselves from our neighbors, friends, teachers, students, and even our families? How do we ensure that social and emotional learning is carried on as students and teachers meet over Zoom, or don’t get to see nor hear from each other at all?
Empowering teachers to design their own SEL instruction makes sense; they know their students best. However, many SEL programs adopted by schools consist of scripted and sequenced curricula designed to be used in a weekly 30-minute block often led by a school counselor or designated SEL facilitator. These programs tend to be expensive, require significant training and ongoing support, and limit individual autonomy or choice as adaptations or deviations from the script are seen as threats to program fidelity.

Session 3: Social Emotional Learning: Tools for the Classroom & Library
We often see behaviors at school that are detrimental to both the students exhibiting the behavior and those around them. Many times, inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and even aggression may be more than a student demonstrating that he or she is bored, acting out or seeking attention. These behavioral issues interfere with student learning because they are disruptive or consume a lot of class time, but have we truly considered what foundational issues are behind those actions?
