Developing students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) requires much more than a SEL program. Successful high-performing, high-poverty schools (HP/HP) integrate SEL into everything they do. Drawing from the 2nd Edition of the best-selling Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools and their new study of 16 HP/HP schools, the authors will share insight into how the practical strategies found in the Framework for Action seamlessly align with the ten indicators of school wide integration of SEL identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. Participants will learn how educators in HPHP schools develop the collective efficacy required to fully integrate their efforts to improve academic, social and emotional learning in high-poverty environments. They will emerge from the session equipped with tools and a road map for disrupting poverty’s adverse influence, not only on academic learning, but on social and emotional learning as well.


Wednesday, February 5: William Parrett and Kathleen Budge will be signing copies of their book outside room A308, beginning at 2:15pm.
