Educators are grappling with uncertainty about the new school year. Many wonder how they will reengage students who may have suffered academic learning loss or traumatic experiences during the pandemic while meeting their social-emotional learning needs.
NEA is offering members an opportunity to enroll in virtual Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) courses to learn how to attend to the social and emotional needs that arise during times like these. NEA’s SEL courses offer a powerful means to explore and express our emotions, build relationships, and support each other—children and adults alike.
NEA is offering the following five fall SEL blended learning (facilitated) courses:
- SEL: Self-Awareness
- Learn how to accurately recognize emotions, thoughts, and values to accurately assess one’s strengths and limitations, with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a “growth mindset.”
- SEL: Relationship-Skills
- Learn how to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups to communicate clearly, listen well, cooperate with others, and to seek and offer help when needed.
- SEL: Social-Awareness
- Learn how to take the perspective of and empathize with others to understand social and ethical norms for behavior and to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports.
- SEL: Self-Management
- Learn how to regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations to set and work toward personal and academic goals.
- SEL: Responsible Decision-Making
- Learn how to make constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on ethical standards, safety concerns, and social norms.
All Social-Emotional Learning fall courses run six-weeks (September 20 – October 29th) and are facilitated by NEA-trained blended learning facilitators—all SEL courses provide a certificate for 15-hours of professional development upon completion.
Registration will end by close of business on September 10, 2021. You must be an NEA member to register.
