Social-emotional learning (SEL) is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges in the context of supportive relationships that make learning challenging, engaging, and meaningful. SEL and academics cannot be separated, so when one is ignored, we are building more gaps. This edWebinar provides engaging strategies to connect SEL and academics with arts integration. Educators learn:

  • Why it is important/imperative to provide SEL lessons to your students for the entire school year
  • How to execute 30-minute SEL lessons once a week into your school day using planning tools and resources
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to deliver SEL and academic lessons integrating arts

Educators leave this session feeling empowered with the resources and approaches necessary for embedding SEL into academic curricula with arts integration—making learning fun!

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and curriculum coordinators.
