Online book study for All Learning is Social and Emotional: Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond. Written by: Frey, Fisher and Smith. Participants will read and respond to questions and reflect on what they are reading.
Students may be carrying accumulated trauma from the Pandemic and recent events. They will need more social and emotional support than ever before. This course will provide and/or extend the participants knowledge and strategies to promote SEL as well as strategies for remote teaching and learning. Educators will be able to create a classroom/school culture that teaches resilience and respect in a safe environment. Our goal is to help our students build essential skills that will serve them in our classrooms and throughout their lives!
Who should the audience be for this course? This book study would be a wonderful resource and guide for whole school participation and would support the planning process for the development of a schoolwide SEL environment. School Improvement Teams and individual teachers will benefit as well. All of the ideas and strategies from the book can also be implemented in an individual teacher’s classroom for SEL.
