Social and Emotional Learning Routines & Rituals to Foster an Equitable Learning Community

How can we cultivate learning communities where students feel seen, heard, and valued for their identities through Social and Emotional Learning? In this in-person session, we will engage in SEL based routines and ritualsincluding: welcoming activities, engaging instructional strategies, and closing routines; reflect on the intentions behind these practices; and learn ways to view and carry out these strategies from an equity lens. We will provide opportunities to reflect on our own identities and practices and have conversations with our colleagues with the hopes of fostering connections and a space where we can learn from each other.
