Teaching students how to be good at learning and at life.

If we're going to have high academic expectations of our students, then we must equip them with strategies to navigate feelings like stress, conflict, and failure.

It’s extremely difficult to teach rigorous instruction and redirect challenging student behaviors at the same time. But imagine how challenging it is for our students to focus on their learning without the tools they need to self-regulate their own emotions and behaviors?

Studies show that happiness and well-being are closely correlated with productivity and performance. This means that as educators, it is our responsibility to invest in both our students’ academic and personal development.

Our SEL training and curriculum puts research in a learning format that kids understand and that's easy to teach.

Social-Emotional Learning is an absolute must when it comes to supporting students in the classroom. And we’ve done all the work for you.

In this workshop, we show you how to talk about the research and make it bite-sized and relevant for your students. And then we GIVE you the exact lesson plans, activities, and visuals you need to take these concepts to your classroom and empower your students the very next day.

Reflection & Discussion

It's time to cultivate classroom environments where students...

Feel equipped to advocate for their emotional needs.

Sometimes, student behavior can stem from a sense of confusion and frustration about what they’re feeling. Teaching students how to identify what may be causing stress, fear, or discouragement can help them take steps to feel calm and understand what they need to feel better.

Develop skills to self-regulate their emotions and behaviors.

Once students understand their emotions, we can direct them toward actions they can initiate to get their brains back to positive thought patterns – improving their overall well-being and academic performance.

Actively reflect on the thoughts and actions they are reinforcing.

Provide students with strategies to notice their thought patterns and then reframe their thinking so that they can get their minds back to positive and take action to improve their situation.

Intentionally build relationships with their peers.

Learn how to model conversation and collaboration behaviors that can improve student productivity, collective teamwork, and overall student learning.
