What You Will Learn

How can you teach the non-academic elements that drive student success?

“In today’s assessment-driven culture, we often forget that there are non-academic elements that significantly impact students’ ability to thrive,” says Shea Quraishi. “When I began teaching, I had a degree in psychology with a focus on child development, but little idea of how that applied to the classroom. Only through a great deal of study and even more trial and error did I realize that teaching students how to manage their emotions and how to forge successful relationships could be systematic, purposeful and driven by research.”
During this 90-minute interactive webinar, Shea Quraishi will discuss how educators can integrate Social Emotional Learning throughout their curriculums during the coming year so that SEL becomes a lens through which educators and students see everything else.
