Course DescriptionWhat exactly is social and emotional learning and how can teachers integrate it into classrooms to support students? Our authors believe that classroom learning always includes cognitive, social and emotional aspects. Does focusing on SEL take away from academics? Do SEL programs teach values and if so, is that a job for teachers or parents? This book, written by Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher and Dominique Smith, provides K-12 educators with a toolbox of strategies that will help transform students into empowered, all-purpose problem solvers.
By the end of the course, educators will understand:
- The definition of social and emotional learning (SEL) and its relationship to equity
- Emotional regulation and the importance of recognizing and identifying emotions
- The definition of social skills and how to help students develop empathy
- Public spirit and civic responsibility
- How to select an SEL program.
