Members will design SEL integrated lesson plans and share associated student work to cultivate the learning community's collective capacity for reflective practice.

Course content will be aligned to NYS Learning Standards relevant to PLC member teaching assignments, the NYS Social and Emotional Learning Benchmarks, and the course mentor text. Direct instruction will focus on the 3 SEL Signature Practices and other research-informed teaching practices (AIR. 2014) that simultaneously promote academic success and nurture social emotional competency across the content areas: academic discussion; cooperative learning; self-reflection and self-assessment;student voice and choice.

Secular mindfulness exercises will be offered to support the development of adult SEL, specifically self-awareness and self-management, and reduce stress -- that is, mindful awareness exercises practiced in the SEL PLC are designed for educator self-care.

At the end of 2016, The Oxford Dictionary named "post truth" its word of the year, citing as its definition: "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief." In an age in which information is abundant, easy to access and often overwhelming AND in which there's economic incentive to mislead consumers, discerning fact from fiction has become THE 21st Century skill. In this fun, interactive session participants will explore the "fake news" phenomenon, discuss its impact on our students, teachers and society, put their own source evaluation skills to the test and discover ways that librarians can (and must!) lead the charge as defenders of facts in a post truth world. Lunch will be provided.
