TOGETHER WE CAN DO MORE Collaboration and teams amplify learning.
This small group consultancy protocol can help individuals think more deeply about a concrete dilemma around SEL implementation, and can also strengthen collaboration and collective efficacy among stakeholders.
CASEL staff presented this webinar in collaboration with NAESP to share recommendations for how principals can coordinate and build upon SEL practices and programs to create an environment that infuses SEL into every part of students’ educational experience and promotes equitable outcomes. You can view a summary and the full webinar at https://www.naesp.org/communicator-october-2019/principal-s-role-sel
When staff understand what motivates them and what motivates others, they are better equipped to work together in productive ways. This page can help teams explore what motivates them in the workplace.
Support staff in cultivating personal social and emotional competencies and fostering the competencies of peers and students.
Expand adult learning through structures such as professional learning communities and mentoring opportunities.
When instructional practices actively involve students in making meaning of content, they are more deeply engaged in their learning and have meaningful opportunities to practice SEL skills.
Professional learning communities provide an important opportunity to integrate SEL into existing practices, work collaboratively on the goals of schoolwide SEL, and cultivate their own social and emotional competencies.
SEL practices help improve collaboration and can be embedded into any meeting where staff comes together to help build collaboration. Practices may include intentional opportunities to connect personally, interact in meaningful ways, share appreciations, or take time for reflection.
Cultivate a community of adults who engage in their own social and emotional learning, collaborate on strategies for promoting SEL, and model SEL throughout the school.
