Who could have imagined in 2019 that face-to-face communication in our schools and community would feel awkward and cause for stress for all participants? As teachers and students begin to reunite within the classroom and school setting, what type of social emotional learning can we provide to ease this transition back toward working, learning, and playing in spaces we physically share together? This free webinar will explore tried and true specific teaching frameworks and Social Thinking® Vocabulary to encourage the development of metacognitive awareness and strategies for use in the classroom and home to demystify social engagement within face-to-face interactions. Our Social Thinking Methodology seeks to make the abstract social world more concrete, helping students to better navigate to regulate their thoughts and feelings within it. Lessons shared within this webinar will also embed the five tenets established in the CASEL framework:
- social awareness
- relationship skills
- responsible decision making
We will also briefly share practical tools and takeaways from our own learning based on multi-year partnerships with schools/districts around the USA for how to apply our social emotional learning concepts schoolwide.
