Gearing Up For Change: Emotional and Social Development at the Core of Developing Individuals

Mónica Rodriguez Salvo

Helping students - and teachers- develop social-emotional skills goes a long way toward ensuring they'll be on the path to success in college, career, and life. Practising self-management in discussions with peers, making positive decisions, managing emotions when disappointments happen, building healthy relationships, and persisting in the face of setbacks—are all necessary life skills. They also contribute to academic success. The short- and long-term benefits of nurturing SEL have been well-documented. The future of skills is embedded within the development of these skills, so join us in this hands-on webinar to tackle the basic concepts of social and emotional learning (SEL) and get bright new ideas for immediate implementation in your classroom.
