Full course description
- This book study will go in depth with Social Emotional Learning! We will meet virtually 4 times (1/27 | 2/10 | 2/24 | 3/03) to discuss the book, “All Learning is Social and Emotional” (Frey, Fisher, & Smith) and it’s application to your classroom and schools in DCSD. This excellent resource defines the core aspects of social and emotional learning and provides practical suggestions for how schools might adopt them and how teachers can focus on them in their classrooms. You will be provided with a copy of the book! Please note that this course will run with a minimum of 20 participants, so please invite your colleagues to join! We will let you know if our minimum threshold is not met by January 19th.
