About this Event

Check-In: A simple, profound, and essential practice to maintain balance and guide decision making for all ages.

IFSEL’s approach to Check-In offers a simple and profound practice that activates self- and group-awareness and is the foundation for all social and emotional learning.

November 17th, 2020 - 4-6pm Pacific, 7-9pm Eastern

NB: We will split this workshop into a K-5th Grade track and a 6th-12th Grade track. Please select your track at registration.

Workshop Overview:

The term “check-in” is now quite a popular term referring to the process of tuning in to ourselves and our feelings. Check-in provides an opportunity for each individual to take an “emotional inventory”. When students are ready and feel safe to share with a group, check-in can help them build social awareness and provide a great deal of empathy amongst students. Consistent practice with this tool of check-in provides individual students with a sense of calm and control while assisting the entire group in centering, focusing, and understanding each other.

For some, this idea of feelings and expressing feelings through words or rocks or color is foreign. For others, checking-in is a way to deal with stress and helps us get our needs met. At IFSEL, we believe that the ritual of check-in can be a gift for both the teacher and student in the classroom setting. Join us for an interactive two hour workshop to learn how check-in can serve as a foundational tool for all human beings. This practice will help strengthen the social and emotional competency of self-awareness. Check-in can be used with parents, classes, groups, faculty, and organizations.

Goals of this session:

Teachers will develop an understanding of check-in and it’s benefits

Teachers will learn a plethora of age appropriate ways to check- in with students
