About the Event
This workshop is suitable for primary school educators and leaders looking to implement an evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) program and for any educators who have implemented the Second Step program and would like to learn more about the program and best practices for whole-school SEL. Although there is a focus on whole-school implementation, it is also suitable for practitioners using Second Step with children in small group settings to improve social-emotional skills outside the classroom.
Why choose Second Step?
The school-wide Second Step evidence-based SEL program is designed to increase school readiness and social success, decrease challenging behaviours and promote self-regulation skills and social-emotional competence.
Social and emotional learning concepts provide an extra dimension to education, focusing on improving co-operation, communication, and decision making. In a world where emotional intelligence is critical for lifelong happiness, successful careers, and healthier relationships, SEL gives students a framework for developing these skills.
Workshop highlights include:
- Practical resources and activities to strengthen both your own and your students' social and emotional skills.
- The alignment between SEL and the positive behaviour for learning (PBL/PBIS) framework and best practices for implementation.
- Bullying-prevention and the link with SEL.
- Alignment with the Australian National Curriculum.
- Participate in a Second Step lesson
Come away with a clear picture of what is needed to implement, or reinvigorate and strengthen your whole-school SEL Second Step program.
