You have the power to be a life changer! Fostering a sense of belonging within the classroom can have a major impact on the academic, social and emotional success of each student. As an educator, you need the right tools to make that happen. R.E.A.C.H. to Connect with Students: Implementing SEL Daily in Your Program provides you with five principles for establishing connection with students of all ages, leading to a stronger sense of belonging and well-being, which improves students' academic performance, emotional intelligence and overall life satisfaction. You will be able to connect with your students on a personal and professional level while gaining an understanding of how your own beliefs, biases, and triggers can impact your relationship with your students.
Participants will be able to implement social and emotional learning in their daily interactions and communication with students. This approach supports students social and emotional development, which impacts their ability to communicate with others, their resilience and growth mindset, and their academic performance.
Participants will be able to identify their students' emotional needs and use modeling behaviors to help them identify self-regulation techniques that best support the student.
Participants will be able to utilize the R.E.A.C.H. framework to objectively address challenging student behaviors and provide the emotional support they need in the moment. They will do this by understanding how their biases and triggers shape their worldview and communication with others. Adults will be able to model and teach self-regulation strategies to support their students' emotional needs in healthy and safe ways.
This program is OCCRRA-approved for educators in the state of Ohio.
