EQUITY BASED SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)

This innovative and inclusive approach to equity based SEL gives students opportunities to explore their identity, contextualize their place in society, and develop strategies they face as students of color.  It also increases teachers' awareness of how their teaching can impact equiity.

Leading social emotional learning (SEL) conversations that incorporate a sociopolitical context fraught with injustice and inequity is a scary prospect for most educators but essential for students, especially at a time when these issues are part of the daily discourse.

Students and teachers alike need a safe space and support to be willing and able to discuss challenging issues that impact their lives.  Creating a space to enable these conversations will have the tremendous payoff of bringing us together rather than dividing us and will enhance student-teacher relationships and build individual self-esteem.

 

We provide curriculum, training, support, and guidance to help your school community engage in these challenging but rewarding conversations that will hopefully lead to future generations of leaders who incorporate justice and equity into all aspects of everyday life.  If handled well, these conversations will almost immediately create a better, more accepting learning environment and students with greater self-esteem.

Why Equity-based Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?

WHY DO TEACHERS NEED SUPPORT FOR THIS?

Educators often avoid teaching equity-based SEL for fear they will be accused of being political or because they feel unprepared and uncomfortable in leading discussions about violence, racism, sexism, homophobia and other common forms of injustice.
