The Social Emotional Learning department in Washoe County School District is hosting a series of mini-conferences throughout the 2016-2107 school year focused on supporting teachers and school leaders as they implement SEL at their school sites. At the first such conference on Thursday evening, some educators participated in a session focused on integrating SEL with Common Core-aligned teaching and learning. Working with an article published by educationfirst, educators engaged with instructional moves and explored how they integrated Social Emotional Learning standards and the CCSS ELA Instructional Shifts. Participants began by reading and completing a shared annotation of the article, "Every Child, by Name and Face, to Graduation" before moving onto a discussion of the article using Save the Last Word. Materials for the session can be found below.
