Building Social Emotional Learning (SEL) through Academic Strategies

Wednesday, August 7th  2019

8:30 am – 3:30 pm

SEL Register Here

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) enables children and adults to manage and understand their emotions, set positive goals, build and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. Through direct and indirect instruction, SEL in the classroom has been proven to help students learn better, perform better on tests and work in a more positive and collaborative manner with their peers. SEL skills in the classroom enable students to learn how to learn. This training outlines five different teaching strategies to build SEL skills through direct practice and discussion. By the end of the training, participants will better understand SEL skills and competencies and how to practice these skills in the classroom without an SEL curriculum.

Restorative Justice and restorative practices applied in our schools reflects an approach to wrongdoing and harmful behavior that aims to both prevent wrongdoing at all levels and intervene in offending behavior. Restorative practices help to build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled. A restorative model fits well within the multi-tiered framework of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) and is at the heart, a prevention based approach. Come learn more about how to use PBIS in your school and district.
