Webinar: Empowering Students with Social and Emotional Skills Using the Responsive Classroom Approach


As a result of the recent global health crisis, schools have been propelled into a new learning structure.  Remote learning has provided opportunities for continued academic learning while at the same time making social and emotional learning a challenge to maintain.

For decades, educators have turned to Responsive Classroom to support social, emotional, and academic learning. This interactive webinar provides school leaders an introduction to the Responsive Classroom approach, with strategies you can use now, and as you look ahead to the future.

Key takeaways:

  • Explore how the Responsive Classroom approach lays the foundation for social and emotional learning to thrive in both remote and in-person school communities.
  • Analyze the guiding principles and core beliefs of the Responsive Classroom approach and their impact on students.
  • Engage in conversations with other leaders through structured discussions about how to empower students using SEL skills.
