Webinar - What Every Educator Needs to Know about Social and Emotional Learning

May 10, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. EST

Social and emotional learning, or SEL, refers to evidence-based practices informed by rigorous, systematic social science that underscore the way we understand, use, and manage emotions to learn. Emotions drive how we think, pay attention, make decisions, manage our time, and countless other processes that impact how students and teachers show up in the classroom.
Scientific studies evaluating the impact of SEL programs show that these practices improve students’ academic performance, behavior, and attendance. These practices help students and their teachers form and sustain better quality relationships, and improve both students’ and teachers’ psychological health and well-being.
This webinar is appropriate for Parents, Teachers, and Educational Support Staff Audiences. 
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to
1. Define SEL and its primary instructional competencies 
2. Identify who benefits from SEL in their school community
3. Explore how to addresses student instructional needs.
