Students in distress cannot learn. When they are overwhelmed with social and emotional issues, it is difficult for them to focus. As teachers, we need to help learners manage their social and emotional issues through the development of social and emotional competencies.
In this workshop, teachers will learn about the five cognitive, emotional, and behavioural competencies – Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Management and Responsible Decision-Making – and how they can help their students to acquire these competencies through Social and Emotional Learning strategies.
Teachers will acquire useful interactive strategies to facilitate the development of these competencies. The use of these strategies will provide for an inclusive and safe learning environment that will create a lasting impact on learners’ academic and social development.
