New Jersey has recently adopted Social Emotional Competencies as part of the Standards that schools use to guide their curriculum and instruction. Through this interactive, hands-on workshop, evidence on the benefits of SEL in school will be discussed and teachers will leave with a thorough understanding of WHAT these competencies mean and HOW to include the SEL competencies in their classrooms. Participants will take an in-depth look at each of the five competencies (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Responsible Decision-Making, and Relationship Skills) by reviewing best practices, lesson plans and curriculum resources. Finally, teachers will walk away with strategies for immediate integration of the SEL competencies into their academic instruction and classroom routines.
