At the heart of this workshop is a recognition of the power of writing and reading to create classrooms and schools where social emotional learning flourishes. This workshop offers suggestions, activities, and dialogue about social emotional learning that doesn’t gobble up our students’ time, but creates a classroom where learning and the love of learning are nurtured. This workshop supports existing school-wide programs as well.
