Equity & Clinical Practices

August 11th 11:30-1:30 CST

A Student-Centered Approach to Social Emotional Learning 

9:30 PST / 11:30 CST / 12:30 EST

Dr. Byron McClure

Across the nation, district and school leaders are shifting towards practices that are equitable, fair, and create favorable outcomes for students who have historically been marginalized. Many schools and district leaders, educators, practitioners, and other key stakeholders still have questions about how to thoughtfully design systems that are equitable while implementing social emotional learning programming. Additionally, many leaders and educators are wondering what SEL tools and strategies promote equitable outcomes and how to utilize them. This session will help participants to understand how to use a strength-based approach to SEL designed to create the necessary conditions to ensure every student has the chance to succeed.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe key elements of a strength-based approach when implementing SEL. 
  • Explain barriers that might prevent educators from effectively implementing SEL. 
  • Analyze how disproportionality shows up in school. 
  • Describe essential elements of a student-centered approach to SEL.
