NEW! In these uncertain times, ensuring that we incorporate Social and Emotional Learning into our day to day teaching practices has become more important than ever. Social and Emotional teaching and learning is not actually new. We have always taught the whole child; it is impossible to do otherwise. And we will continue to teach the whole child in whatever form learning takes during this Global Pandemic -be that in-person, remotely, or with a blended learning approach. Teachers can integrate social-emotional learning into their classroom practices in any of these scenarios. We need to be deliberate and knowledgeable about the how, what and why when incorporating Social and Emotional Learning practices into our repertoire as we embrace learning this year -no matter what our “classroom” looks like.
