Event description


Students, like the rest of us, are very much affected by what's happening in their lives and how they feel about themselves as learners in an academic setting; their receptivity and performance depend upon how their schools and classrooms make them feel. That's why the research makes the practice very clear: Students need opportunities in their academic classrooms to develop the skills, habits, and dispositions necessary for developing a sense of belonging in their academic community that will ultimately lead to academic success.

Join the Institute for Student Achievement (ISA), a division of Educational Testing Service (ETS), for this first in a series of webinars, as we discuss our three-year social, emotional, and academic development (SEAD) project across six secondary schools. During the webinar, we will provide an overview of the SEAD research from the UChicago Consortium on School Research and access to an ISA website with SEAD resources and tools.

Additionally, you will hear how one school used ISA's support and its own professional learning to guide teachers in developing skills and strategies to teach students how to use and learn from mistakes, be reflective about and invested in their own growth, and use use their strengths to tackle any problem put in front of them.

Participants to include:


  • Welcome and setting the stage
  • SEAD research and ISA's SEAD-focused work
  • SEAD in the schoolhouse
  • Questions and final thoughts

We hope that you can join us online for this webinar!
