Instruction that Builds Classroom Dialogue, Community, and Collaboration

Valerie Braimah, Executive Director, City Charter Schools

We often talk about social-emotional learning (SEL) and academic development as two separate goals, attended to at different parts of the day. But when we marry the two through instruction, students learn to apply SEL to skill-building and the pursuit of knowledge. Learn concrete strategies that:

– encourage student dialogue and collaboration;
– develop student ability to present and defend their reasoning in all content areas; and
– create a learning environment that encourages risk-taking and embraces multiple ways of learning.
