Succeeding in life and in school takes more than great scores on math and reading tests. Other skills—such as how to communicate effectively, negotiate conflict, manage emotions and behavior, and make responsible decisions—are critically important for student success. “The extent to which schools help students develop interpersonal skills, such as cooperation, respect, and persistence,” was extremely or very important in school quality to 80% of respondents in a Phi Delta Kappa poll released in August 2017.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Rita Oates, President of Oates Associates, helps you think about how you might fund social emotional learning (SEL) activities for your district, school or classroom and where you might find funding.
This edWebinar addresses:
How to develop a concept for a grant that includes social emotional learning activities
Who to partner with in your school or community on a grant for SEL
Where to find research to support your request for funding social emotional learning
How to measure social emotional learning for grant purposes
Where to find funding sources to impact social emotional learning for a classroom, school or district
Educators, administrators, and people who seek grant funding for K-12 schools and universities in partnership with them will benefit from watching this recorded event. Learn more about getting funding for social emotional learning activities.
