Thursday Talks: Ales & Ideas

Caring for the Whole Student: Social Emotional Learning with an Equity Lens

Presented by Jenni Newton w/ Heather Douglas

The pandemic has impacted all social systems in some way, but the effects on PreK-12 schools provided a magnifying glass onto preexisting concerns. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a framework for schools and staff which helps guide students in their own development of skills essential for success in families, work, social groups, and communities. Resilience, empathy, ambition, curiosity, belonging, awareness, connection, and purpose—along with many other SEL components—can all be fostered while teaching more traditional academic content. This month’s Ales & Ideas free lecture series provides community members a chance to learn about this framework which acknowledges that all learning is social and emotional. Jenni Newton, Ph.D. will share methods and strategies used to support students’ relationships at work, home, and with friends. The evening will include a slide presentation and an opportunity for Q&A from the audience. All are welcome.
