175. SEL in the Classroom: A Platform for Social Justice

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This interactive workshop will help teachers to understand what SEL (Social Emotional Learning) is and is not, as well as practice ways to help students work on their social emotional learning skills in their target language. By helping students identify their emotions, acknowledge them, and work on ways to deal with them, students receive valuable life skills that make them more effective and productive learners. SEL also helps to create a level playing ground in the classroom by understanding each other as humans and not as our heritage, social standing, race, or ability. SEL activities help students to develop kindness, care, and understanding amongst students, and to open them to the larger ideas of social justice: human rights, equality, access, and participation.
