Discover the Importance of Social Emotional Learning When Combined with STEAM
In order for students to take risks, try new ideas, develop skills to help them work positively and productively with peers, and to help them integrate cross disciplinary thinking, a high level social emotional curriculum and classroom environment is necessary. This course critically analyzes the various Social Emotional Learning (SEL) methods and research background on the benefits of teaching through the lens of SEL and how it can support students in a STEAM setting. Throughout this course participants will apply a critical understanding of what SEL is, teacher and student tools for implementing SEL in the classroom, case studies of how SEL can be applied, and the opportunity to create a STEAM project that implements SEL practices while using a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS).
