Description

Social and Emotional Learning Institute for K-12 Educators

This 2-day summer institute will provide teachers the opportunity to explore the research, tools, and practices of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Using experiential and active learning techniques based in research and practice, the institute will help teachers develop a range of skills to support students’ emotional well-being, interpersonal communication skills, and problem-solving skills.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is “the process through which people learn to recognize and manage emotions, care about others, make good decisions, behave ethically and responsibly, develop positive relationships, and 
avoid negative behaviors. Such skills are critical components of the success of all schools.” (Elias, 2007). With SEL, students perform better academically, and the educational community is more nourishing and vital. Lack of SEL can result in students bringing disruption and anxiety to educational and social encounters, and in teachers being too depleted to model emotional wellness or to inspire.

Participants will be grouped by elementary or middle/high school. The Institute will include multiple sessions geared to specific grade levels (elementary or middle/high school), ensuring that participants learn age-appropriate strategies for their students. Be sure to purchase a ticket that corresponds with the grade level you teach.

Participants will develop tools and strategies to:

  • Conduct classes in ways that build capacity for personal reflection, meaningful conversation, ritual and group harmony.
  • Practice skills that engage students in meaningful conversations, personal reflection, and positive group interactions.
  • Use SEL principles to facilitate more powerful academic curriculum design.
  • Apply SEL techniques to improve Advisory, Homeroom, or community meetings.
  • Work with values to build teacher resilience, humanity and creativity.
  • Learn about and practice ways to facilitate student-to-student conflict resolution.

The workshop is ideal for K-12 teachers and administrators, counselors, advisors, and deans.
