Learn new ways to foster social and emotional learning as you get to know your students this fall.

About this event

Meeting new classes for the first time can be daunting...so many names to learn, so many new personalities to get to know. Thanks to over 27 years of working with teachers, we know one of the best ways to get started with a new group is through improvisation with the primary goal of fostering mutual respect.

Join us as we share what we've learned through working with hundreds of new classes over the years. Participants will:

  • Practice interactive and engaging strategies for helping students share who they are and get to know one another through social and emotional learning.
  • Learn improvisation games that can build classroom community as well as offer insights into how your students think.
  • Use what you've learned to create a plan for how you will get to know your students in the first week of school.

PLEASE NOTE: We teach the way people learn best - with our whole selves. This means all of our sessions, both in-person and online are fully interactive. You're not going to do a lot of sitting and listening! Our online sessions are "cameras on" and "mics unmuted" so participants can get to know and interact with one another. We are often physically moving around whatever space we happen to be in but we ask participants to move and interact in the ways that work best for their bodies. Time flies in this environment and we guarantee you'll leave these sessions feeling energized and ready to try something new. We can't wait to learn with you!
