Recordings of Nick Yoder's Presentation
American Institutes for Research's Nick Yoder presented Connecting Social and Emotional Learning and School Climate: Key Components of Student Success. Consensus is emerging that student development of social and emotional competencies is critical for student success in work, life, and career. Yet, teachers and administrators often mention that they do not have the time to implement social and emotional learning (SEL). A following two recordings are of the conference presentation.
- Part 1 - Explains why it is important, and explores some key components of SEL.
- Part 2 - Discusses ways to integrate SEL into instruction, as well as support adult social and emotional competencies. Dr. Yoder also provides strategies on how to integrate SEL into other initiatives, including school climate and PBIS.
