Introduction to Social Emotional Learning, preparing students for success in workforce and career and technical education. (Part 1) - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I can't see it all. Some squares are showing up over the video
is anyone else seeing black boxes across the screen, obscuring the text and video?
Yes I am
Yes - I am
Thanks! We can make sure you get the link,
aside from that, I appreciate the fact that this video shows not only the hardships that the students are experiencing, but the hardships that the staff endure, as well!
might it help if we turn our screens off?
As a school counselor the whole video did
Reminiscent of some students and also for myself.
Yes - food insecurity
Everyone has a story adults included
Many of these examples are current in my counseling position
I love that they spoke about the adults in the school as well
I think we forget that the adults are going through things too
We don't know what someone is going through. People put on masks all day long
the teacher whose job was threatened. I think we do tend to focus on our kids and their stories but forget about our coworkers.
Yes, I agree Lindsay

Just being able to be aware of others
Our class votes on Charity of the month - and we raise money by selling coffee in the school store for .25 - We discuss what is like to be needy. How would you feel if it was you. How can you help. Its a life skill that should be addressed everyday. Simply say Hi how are you and then listen. Also as TA getting to know your students and earn their respect they tend to open up and share but it also makes me notice any changes and feel comfortable to ask the student to talk.
I love that so much<3
Thank you for that comment because we do these things day in and day out.
As you mentioned many of our students are not taught the skills needed to be employed. If not brought up learning respect then we as teachers need to hold them to a higher standard and help then learn RESPECT and then demand it
Simple team building games are a huge hit in our class. Not everyone gets along but as young adults you cant choose who you work with or who you work for. Grouping students who normally don't communicate with each other as a team forces them to talk and work together. Most of the time students find they made a new friend or that you don't have to love the person to get alon at work.
I don't think we should be demanding respect... we can do our best to teach and encourage
It is built right into our whole building initiative
Classroom teachers are teamed with intervention teachers to address SEL. As the SEL (TOA), I have the opportunity to work with individual students as well as classes throughout the day.
Built into mission statement and school based goals. We also provide SEL slides to teachers during homeroom so they can learn SE skills
We have town-hall meetings for each grade level (9-12) which gives an opportunity to encourage these things at a grade level. It also gives the students time that they can be part of the conversation on how to be responsible and make good choices. Giving them a chance to be heard helps motivate them
I'm at the same school as Mary--whole school integrates SEL continuously... Our two 1/2 days have been devoted to SEL choice options for students. They sign up for the SEL topics of interest to them (which are spread out over three, one-hour sessions)
I work collaboratively with my students' educational teams to assist in SEL/Expanded Core Curriculum for my students. I am a teacher of the blind and have to provide very purposeful teaching.
I feel like we were inundated with strategies in the past couple of years especially during zoom teaching, and I still utilize them in the classroom. I mean, all of these things are of course things that effective teachers have been doing, but its good to get new strategies and be more explicit about teaching these skills.
Eval. can be submitted AFTER this session ends

If the students enjoy what they are learning they can connect to what is being taught through SEL and working with those intervention specialists building community in the classroom
We have advisory every week that includes the entire school. The topics focus on not only areas of interest, but also those which are time-sensitive (Q and A, things you need to know about the SAT, about college visits, etc. They are grade -level appropriate and follow the natural timeline of the school year.
huge catch up with both social and academic skills needed
Thank you for the valuable information
Thank you, everyone!!
