Social-Emotional Supports for Learning
Monday, November 24, 2014 | 1 - 1:45 p.m. EDT
Dr. Stephanie Jones, Harvard Graduate School of Education
Dr. Jones will describe core social and emotional skills that support learning in the early childhood classroom. She will also provide an overview of a preschool- and early elementary-focused, school-wide and classroom-based program that teaches students strategies to focus their thinking, manage their behavior, build positive social relationships, and understand and deal with their feelings—all in ways that support learning and life success.
