The Literacy Organizational Capacity Initiative (LOCI) sponsored a webinar on Social Emotional Learning: the Foundations Every Teacher Needs to Know.
Today's literacy classrooms are expected to be more interactive, collaborative, and rigorous than ever before. Research has shown that when educators attend to the social emotional needs of students and offer instruction in the skills necessary to successfully engage with intrapersonal and interpersonal interactions, academic achievement is enhanced. What are these social-emotional competencies, how are they developed, and how can they be integrated in instruction throughout the school day? This free webinar will share information that we at LOCI believes undergirds any effective literacy curriculum and is especially critical in constructing a school culture that supports successful, engaged, and fully present learning for students and teachers alike.
