Transcript of Getting Emotional (and Social) About Education

Rona Novick, PhD Getting Emotional (and Social)
About Education: A Bright Idea Consider your priorities
Consider your resources - what can you build on
Before you start something- decide to do it right
Consider the small changes that make a difference
What will you personally do differently?
What one big idea will you bring back to your team? How Do We Do It? School wide or targeted groups
Prevention or intervention
"Experts" or teachers
Start early or any grade level
Little or Lot (dosage)
One time vs. On-going Why Do We Need It? Watch the video and on your Graffiti Strips, write any

What strengths do you have that would be a natural support for SEL?
What training/support will staff need?
How will you sell/market this?
What are the financial ramifications? Some Big SEL Ideas Good for everyone, everyone benefits
Ounce of prevention worth pounds of cure
