You are invited to join Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest for a webinar to learn how practitioners can implement equitable practices to support students’ social and emotional development.
Research shows that social-emotional learning (SEL) initiatives can improve academic and social outcomes for all students, particularly those in low-income families or those affected by trauma. However, a student’s social and emotional development depends on having equitable opportunities to learn and grow. The cultural context of SEL initiatives is critical because social and emotional development depends on the student’s culture and experiences.
This webinar will showcase how practitioners can implement SEL practices that are equitable to support students’ social and emotional development. Presenters will discuss research on SEL and equity, and the connections between the two, as well as SEL strategies that districts and schools can use to promote equity. A presenter will also share firsthand experience using SEL and equity practices to support students.
This webinar is designed for principals, instructional coaches, teachers, guidance counselors, district administrators whose work involves SEL and/or equity, state-level administrators whose work involves SEL and/or equity, and researchers. If you cannot attend the live event, register to be notified when a recording of the webinar is available online.
