Social and Emotional Learning Strategies for the Well-Being of English Learners
Presented by Gilda Martinez-Alba, Towson University; Luis Javier Penton Herrera , American College of Education
Acknowledging and caring about students’ feelings and emotions before jumping into instruction is important. Can you think about a time when someone approached you to ask you for something without taking the time to see how you are doing? How did you feel? Why? We plan to engage in a rich dialogue about this and many other ways that social emotional learning strategies can help your English learners. We will pose questions, share scenarios/stories/activities, and look forward to learning from each other. This presentation will also provide background knowledge about Social Emotional Learning (SEL) frameworks (CASEL, 2020) for English learners.
