Transforming School Culture: Making Adult-First SEL a Reality

Wednesday February 10, 2021
11:15 AM - 12:15 PM
Lecture 2

This session utilizes personal reflection and the latest information about brain-based, adult-first SEL to aid participants in examining their challenges and goals for SEL implementation. It then provides long and short term strategies to help them devise a plan for sustainable schoolwide application of high-quality SEL. Participants will explore and better understand the parallel process between building strong, supportive adult communities, and creating classroom experiences that lead to student relationships and SEL skills development; they'll learn how to increase the impact of small school climate improvements, personal mindset shifts and behavior changes so they become both impactful and universal over time; and will leave this session with a starting point for transformational change, including strategies for assembling a diverse school climate team that shares a deep commitment to honest reflection, learning, skills practice and the improvement of processes schoolwide.
