Learning often happens when we are focused on progress (over product) and we are willing to take risks. However, students are sometimes nervous to make mistakes. How do we intentionally create a classroom that encourages this? According to The Center on Great Teachers and Leaders, there are 10 key social emotional learning teaching strategies. Both warmth and support help create a positive classroom community. Warmth and Support is the academic and social support that students receive from their teacher and from their peers. During this session, we will take a look at intentional SEL teaching strategies to build the kind of environment where students are connected, taking risks, and supporting each other.
