During this time of social distancing, it remains important for us to stay connected to each other, to harness our collective capacity for solution-building, and to check in about feelings of anxiety or stress.

As such, the SEL Classroom Community Connection is a forum for educators (P-16) who are interested in connecting to a.) gather strength and wisdom from one another; b.) experiment with and share social emotional learning (SEL) strategies for building supportive and caring classroom communities (online and in-person).

To grow our pedagogical skills, each session will offer the opportunity to experience and debrief the 3 SEL Signature Practices (Welcoming Routine, Engaging Practices, Optimistic Closure). These general teaching practices help to create classroom and schoolwide conditions that facilitate and support social emotional development in all: students and adults.
