It's Fundamental 

Curriculum Design, Research and Rationale (Grades 1-12)

“It’s Fundamental” is an interactive presentation that highlights studies and thinking behind incorporating SEL into educational practices. A framework of guiding principles for instruction, teacher responses, and curriculum design will be shared. The session provides curricular approaches, themes, and rationale to make Social and Emotional Learning a meaningful and integral part of your classroom and school.

IFSEL Toolbox I: Foundational SEL Tools

Path for 1-5 Grade Teachers

We explore the capacity and motivation of children to learn and apply social and emotional learning skills to their daily lives. This experiential session will describe a lesson sequence to help your school get started with SEL.

You will explore the use of creative metaphor and analytic thinking to activate the hearts and minds of elementary-aged children in pursuit of their first tools for SEL. These tools will include elements of self regulation and conflict resolution. This workshop can be adapted for teachers introducing foundational SEL tools for older students, as well.
SEL Insights for Subject Area Teaching, Homeroom and Advisory

Path for 6-12 Grade Teachers

SEL brings a wide and creative lens to view subject area teaching, Advisory or homeroom. This session offers the opportunity to consider design ideas—goals, role of the homeroom and Advisory, timing and grouping—to strengthen the classroom with intention and focus.  

Attendees will engage in a series of experiences that activate personal reflection, meaningful conversations, rituals, and positive group interactions among students. We also explore ways to make Advisory/homeroom a place where students have opportunities for leadership, collaboration, compassion, and stress management.
