Social Emotional Learning in a Jewish Setting
Displaying agenda in event timezone (1:48 PM CST)
A 4-part series – Developing Essential Skills to Complement Jewish Education
The What, Why, and How of Social Emotional Learning (session 1 of a 4-part series)
We don’t need the latest research to tell us that the events of the last year have led to an increase in anxiety and stress among our learners, educators, and principals. Emotions can both motivate and hinder learning and so addressing the well-being of our students is critical if we want successful learning to take place. Social-emotional learning (SEL) teaches the skills to help students and teachers identify and manage their emotions while also creating a classroom climate of empathy and trust. And that leads to a more positive environment for everyone to learn and thrive! This session will be an introduction to SEL in the Jewish setting, while also providing SEL tools that can be used with all ages to teach the social and emotional competencies of self-awareness and management.
