Event description
In this interactive webinar we will explore natural links within your existing curriculum that lend themselves to SEL.

About this Event

Although the value of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) makes so much sense to us as teachers and artists, we often get stuck trying to “add” SEL into our lessons. We try to create new lessons that are specifically SEL or we get stuck figuring out how to incorporate SEL into existing lessons.

In this interactive workshop, we will explore natural links within your existing curriculum that lend themselves to SEL and guide you through the process of “curriculum mining." After reviewing the five competencies of SEL, we will model how to mine existing lessons for SEL-based standards. Participants will then search their own curriculum for intentional SEL opportunities, link them to SEL standards, and expand upon these connections with appropriate arts activities and assessment.
