A child who develops good Social and Emotional Learning Skills (SEL) is more likely to better manage emotions, make responsible decisions, and be more successful in school and in life. But are you doing all you can to help your students cultivate these skills? In part 3 of this 4-part series, join Paul LeBuffe, as he shares how to best promote SEL skills - in and out of school - via direct instruction. He will discuss the importance of good SEL curricula and provide strategies you can use to improve attitudes, reduce emotional stress, decrease negative behaviors, and promote prosocial behaviors. Paul will also introduce the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) strategies for intervention and integration across curriculum and the school day. NOTE: While this webinar may be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, additional helpful information may be found in the 3 related webinars: Introduction to the "Whole Child" Initiative and Social Emotional Learning, Evaluating Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills, and School Wide Approaches to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

Nice, quick information.
Thank you for sharing the Social Emotional Learning with culture and climate, Teacher SEL Skills,
Integration, and Explicit Instruction. The DESSA Foudation Skills were most interesting as being designed for implementation across the entire school. Support academic lessons with learning agreements, movement, student voice, and a nice greeting ritual.
Thank you for the insight.

Not what I was hoping for. It was more of an advertisement for something to purchase,rather than actually telling us how to approach SEL.
