Join Victoria Cheng-Gorini of Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility and Share My Lesson for a session on social emotional learning and student self-care.

Available on Demand

In this webinar, staff from the Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility will share strategies for encouraging social and emotional learning and self-care in our students through remote learning platforms. We will:

  • Provide guidelines for opening up dialogue around difficult feelings and ideas that are coming up for students during these hard times.
  • Suggest ways that students can express those feelings and ideas through music, art, physical activities, written prose and more.
  • Provide guidance on how we and our students can step away from it all and get through this challenging period using self-talk and breathing exercises.
  • Look into self-care routines for educators as we move into a new uncharted school year.


Available for one hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.

Original Air Date:  Thursday, August 13, 2020

I had become an adult by the time I learned information about breathing and meditation. I like the directions on how to share it with students. I'm grateful for the tip about limiting my news intake (and social media). I plan on trying the games. I think those will be very helpful to get the students engaged. I will use them to start class and to take a break. I know I'll need it after looking at the computer all day long.

Fantastic presentation with a wealth of information that is practical and simple to implement. Great info on how to start conversations, create community and create hands on learning with reflection and feedback. She talked about less is more and each classroom will look different so whatever is decided in the context of the classroom should identify all and prioritize racial inequities. In addition, she talks about the SEL for teachers so as to be ready to support and provide a safe environment for the students.
