In addition to thinking, comprehending information, and acquiring knowledge, we know that focusing on emotions and feelings is not separate from, but integral to academic success. And while tests do not measure self-awareness, self-discipline, motivation, or empathy, these traits are vital to a student’s healthy cognitive development. John Hattie reminds us: “A positive, caring, respectful environment is a prior condition to learning.” For those reasons, there is no hotter or more important topic in the schools right now than social-emotional learning (SEL). This series of workshops will provide educators with a basic understanding of the latest research and applications of SEL and its 2.0 version, Social-Emotional and Character Development (SECD). The foci will be on interventions at Tiers 1, 2, and 3, how to promote a positive school culture and climate, techniques for promoting youth voice and engagement, and how to infuse SEL into all academic subject areas for the purpose of improving both behavior and academic achievement.
