We know that social and emotional learning (SEL) is the foundation of an equitable schooling for all members of the community. SEL skills enable young people as well as adults to build meaningful relationships. In this session, you will engage with a powerful three-pronged whole-school model for advancing equity in our schools: social and emotional learning, restorative practices and brave conversations about race. You’ll be able develop the beginnings of your own racial autobiographies and engage in personal sharing around culture. Part 2 will be held at 10:15 a.m. tomorrow. Participants must attend both sessions to qualify for a certificate.
