SEL Social-Emotional Learning

Instructor: Natalie Conway

Do you want to see students demonstrate greater independence and self-awareness so as to achieve high academic standards? This course is designed to give you, the teacher, an overview of current research in the field of social-emotional learning as well as information on programs of implementation and strategies for success. Students will learn the scientific evidence which supports teaching practices regarding the five competencies of social-emotional learning (self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, relationships skills, social awareness), learn about building SEL skills in students from diverse backgrounds and with disabilities, investigate their own SEL skills, and answer an independent research question. Completing this course will give you deep knowledge that allows you to take the next steps in improving your classroom climate and ability to reach students who struggle with social-emotional skills.

For K-12 Teachers

This class is offered for 3 Quarter Credits

Student Testimonials:

I really enjoyed the overall structure of the class. It kept me engaged and let me be creative.

This course was amazing! I really enjoyed it and definitely do intend on having a conversation with my principal about the possibility of training staff on SEL. I think it would be such a positive change/addition into our school. I really enjoyed this course because I always knew about social-emotional learning, but never truly had a good understanding of what it is or how to implement it into my classroom. I really value how this course had me reflecting on my own classroom, my own teaching, and emphasized the importance of being aware of the need to develop relationships with students first, then focus on academics.

Our schools, right now, are not equipped to handle these behaviors well.  This is why I think more needs to be done in terms of SEL within our school systems, and why I chose this class.  It has helped me to analyze what is working well at my own school, and what we need to add, improve on, or get rid of at my school.
