WEBINAR: Social Emotional Learning and its Importance in the Classroom

Nurturing the development of emotional intelligence and social skills has been widely embraced as an important and even essential aspect of the “whole child” approach to education. This session will spotlight how the integration of social and emotional learning (SEL) principles into science-based literacy instruction can accelerate academic growth. Attendees will glean insights from research experts on the data-driven influence of SEL and will hear from policy and practice experts who are aiming to use SEL as a strategy to close educational opportunity gaps in classrooms across the country. This conversation will kick-off a Campaign for Grade Level Reading mini-series of webinars that will explore diverse perspectives on SEL and its implications for state education policies.
