About the course
Are you looking for ways to assist your students in managing their emotions, building positive relationships with others and making responsible decisions? In this mini-course, participants will identify and share developmentally appropriate, research-based strategies that foster students’ social and emotional growth. In addition, we will examine best practices for creating and cultivating a positive beginning of the school year. This course is based on the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) framework.
• Articulate the latest research findings and policy recommendations on how learning happens in supportive learning environments where social, emotional and academic development are integrated;
• Identify and share developmentally appropriate, research-based strategies that foster student growth in the five competencies outlined in CASEL’s framework for social emotional learning; and,
• Apply new knowledge through self-reflection, goal setting and action planning.
