Do You See What I See?

Building Social Awareness to Enhance Social Emotional Learning

Meeting the complex social-emotional needs of our students demands a collaborative, team effort from the entire school community. During this workshop, participants will dig into Ohio's Social Emotional Learning Standards Competency C: Social Awareness. Through breakout sessions, hands-on activities, and collaborative discussion opportunities, attendees will identify resources, strategies, and best practices to create an action plan that will help their school level up their own approach to developing Social Awareness in their staff and students. Participants are encouraged to bring colleagues from their schools and districts to take advantage of the opportunities to identify how educators in different roles are working together to tackle these issues.
