“Adolescents are undergoing developmental changes in the brain that shift how they interact with peers and adults. At the same time, they are experiencing a changing and more complex social world. These changes impact their academic learning and make it critical for educators to support their development of social and emotional skills.” –The Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed)’s Science of Adolescent Learning (SAL) initiative

In this webinar, panelists will discuss how the effects of developmental changes and shifting social environments are impacting academic learning. They will share their expertise on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and explain how educators can help students navigate these changes by supporting the development of social and emotional skills.

Join us as we chat with our expert panelists about different facets of SEL including:

  • How can we provide a culturally responsive approach to SEL?
  • What are certain things to keep in mind when considering SEL at various grade levels?
  • What considerations should we keep in mind regarding educator mental health and wellbeing?
  • How do you engage in SEL within the curriculum framework of your district?
  • How do you communicate SEL with your parents and community?
