SEL and Executive Function - A Deep Dive into Self-Management and Responsible Decision Making (No cost for TMI PLC Members)

SEL and Executive Function - A Deep Dive into Self-Management and Responsible Decision-Making

Session 4 of the 2020-2021 TMI-ENVISION SEL Series:

Fostering Safer Learning Spaces to Improve Academic, Social and Emotional Development

Self-control is a strong indicator of future success, regardless of intelligence or social status.  As educators, we cannot control our students’ SES or IQ but we do have the ability to affect their self-control.  However, just telling kids to control themselves or punishing them when they don’t does NOT lead to increased executive function.  

All research shows that children who displayed greater levels of self-control were more likely to have better health, greater financial success and more.  If you think these indicators are important, please make an investment in this session.  You and your team will learn several strategies that can be shared with the rest of your staff tomorrow!

This session is mandatory for all those who know that SEL is no longer “soft skills,” but an absolute must for success from the PARCC to post secondary pursuits.  School safety teams have stated that this is one of the most relevant workshops they have attended. 

Participants can expect to use: 

  • five concrete, reproducible interventions for increasing neural activity and connections in the pre-frontal cortex (where executive function lives);
  • protocols for successful and productive group and center work; and
  • tools (digital and paper) for organization and task completion.

About the TMI-ENVISION Social Emotional Learning Series:

Fostering Safer Learning Spaces to Improve Academic, Social and Emotional Development 

The TMI-ENVISION wildly popular SEL series has returned, even more grounded for application due to the feedback from the hundreds of educators who have attended this series over the past few years.

Plan to attend them all or just one - the choice is yours.  While each session is designed to stand alone, the awesomeness increases when you attend them all. This work is based on the NJ DOE Social Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies & sub-competencies, the work of CASEL, EASEL Lab and Wallace, as well as the PSEL standards.

SEL in our classrooms and schools is one of the positive supports for the Trauma that many have experienced or are experiencing. Mindful practices are one of the SEL tools that are evidenced-based in helping victims of trauma cope.  

To foster safe learning spaces, many schools are shifting their attention to the promotion of pro-social behaviors in their classrooms. Undeniably, SEL and academic development are interconnected and central to the learning process. SEL not only prepares students to be able to participate in learning experiences, it also increases students’ capacity to learn.

All sessions are lively, experiential and fun - and a series model lets us do a deeper dive into what it takes.  Each session has time set aside to plan for implementation.
