Jeffrey Benson draws from his 40-plus years as an educator to provide explicit guidance on incorporating social and emotional learning into K-12 grade lesson planning. He identifies SEL skills into three broad categories: skills for self, interpersonal skills, and skills as a community member. Strategies will be shared on how to integrate these skills into every section of lesson planning. Participants will read the book and then meet to reflect on the books content and how to incorporate it into their lessons, curriculums, classrooms and students.
