Speaker Session - Social Emotional Learning & School Success
The ISM Parent Connection is proud to welcome back Dr. Jules Nolan on March 12th for another presentation, this time on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and School Success.
New Research Demonstrates that SEL Skills are the Best Predictors of School Success. This session will explore social and emotional learning, a skill set that is foundational in learning and life, and is currently the focus of new standards and benchmarks from the MN Dept. of Education. Participants will better understand the 5 areas of SEL skills and how to develop lagging skills in the areas of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A. The presentation includes concrete tools and strategies to use in the classroom and at home as well as current research on the topic.
