Course Description:

Too often, students walk into our classrooms lacking the self-awareness and emotional management skills necessary to meet academic expectations. Without effective self-management strategies, students may respond impulsively and negatively to challenging and anxiety producing situations, impeding the learning of themselves and others.

With most of our time focused on academics, there’s rarely enough time left for building student’s character and supporting their social-emotional needs. However, we know that building emotional intelligence is just as important as building academic skills.

Attend this comprehensive one-day workshop and learn quick “on the spot” social-emotional learning (SEL) and behavioral strategies that are easy to incorporate in your classroom with ALL your students. When students internalize SEL practices they will ….
  • Self-regulate their own emotions and behaviors
  • Resolve conflicts and develop resilience
  • Use critical thinking skills and make wise choices
  • Persevere in the face of rigorous tasks
  • Initiate/maintain positive relationships
  • Take responsibility for their behavior and learning
  • Actively engage in learning and improving their grades
  • Contribute to a positive classroom environment
Through interactive activities and video demonstrations you will leave this workshop inspired with a wealth of highly proactive and effective strategies to transform the social-emotional health of your classroom!
Objectives:

  1. Utilize best practices in the classroom to create a positive learning environment that fosters teamwork and helps students to develop prosocial behavior and relationships with peers and adults.
  2. Implement instructional intervention strategies to support students’ social-emotional learning as it relates to frustration management, impulse control and perseverance to achieve personal and educational goals.
  3. Differentiate between a growth versus fixed mindset and implement interventions to support the development of a perseverance and grit in students.
  4. Analyze common challenging student behaviors and demonstrate the application of a positive behavioral strategy to facilitate social-emotional learning skills.
  5. Implement both proactive and reactive strategies for the most challenging disruptive and explosive student behavior.
  6. Develop a SEL or behavior plan that can be used to support challenging student behavior across all settings.
