Make social and emotional learning a way of being—all day, every day, and in any setting
The pandemic and subsequent switch to distance learning combined with recent instances of racial injustice has put a spotlight on the cracks in the practice of social and emotional learning (SEL). More than ever before, schools are shifting their focus and prioritizing SEL competencies—around the nation and the world. The call for compassion has never been greater.
To easily and effortlessly build SEL into virtual, blended, or in-person environments, behavior experts Jessica Djabrayan Hannigan and John Hannigan have drawn together a collection of tools and processes for SEL that can be applied in any learning environment. In SEL from a Distance, you’ll learn:
- The five SEL competencies and dozens of easy to use processes for building skills in each
- How to identify challenging behaviors and prioritize, define mastery, and teach the SEL skills necessary to address them
- Tips for identifying, teaching, modeling, and reinforcing SEL skills in a virtual setting
- Strategies for applying SEL to the needs of your unique learning environment
Let this practical, easy-to-use toolkit guide you through embedding these critical SEL competencies into your virtual classrooms and make SEL a way of being for you and your students—anytime, anywhere.
