Teaching Channel Talks 40: A Focus on SEL

June 16, 2021 / by Teaching Channel

Join Wendy Amato and Michelle Trujillo as they discuss how social-emotional learning (SEL) can take center stage this fall. You'll learn about red flags to look out for in your students and simple but effective emotional check-ins that you can incorporate into any lesson. Wendy and Michelle also chat about how educators who want to focus on SEL need to begin by focusing on adult SEL first.
