Academic learning may be the explicit focus of schooling, but what teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritize all influence how our students think, see themselves, interact with content and with others, and assert themselves in the world. While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalized programs or specific interventions, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. This edWebinar makes the case for taking a deliberate approach to the “hidden curriculum” already being taught, presenting a five-part model of SEL that’s easy to integrate into everyday content instruction. Learn the whys and hows of:
Building students’ sense of identity and their belief in their ability to learn, overcome challenge, and influence the world around them
Helping students identify, describe, and regulate their emotional responses
Promoting the skills of cognitive regulation critical to decision making and problem solving
Fostering students’ social skills—including teamwork and sharing—and their ability to establish and repair relationships
Equipping students to becoming active and involved citizens
Our children’s emotional development is too important to be an add-on or an afterthought, too important to be left to chance. This integrated approach to SEL empowers every educator to help students develop skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to campus leaders, teachers, and district-level curriculum coordinators and developers.
