Why It Matters

Social emotional learning takes place naturally during amazing conversations in face-to-face classrooms, where everyone is managing their emotions, empathizing and listening to others.  In an e-learning environment, the physical distance between students changes the dynamic of social emotional learning – but not the goal.  Great conversations are needed now more than ever to make sense of today’s world and the only chance some students are going to get to find their voice and change the world.

What We Do

We give teachers the tools to facilitate meaningful social emotional learning conversations.

How We Do It

  • We provide subscriptions to a social emotional learning teaching platform

I:  FREE Weekly Conversations:  3-Step Think Alouds

3-Step Think Alouds are classroom conversation starters for teachers.  The purpose of each Think Aloud is to spark interesting discussions about universal themes students can relate to like forgiveness, perseverance and self-control.  Each Think Aloud includes:

  • A short quote aligned to an SEL theme that kicks off class discussion
  • A claim, counterclaim and essential question to drive the conversation 
  • An example of a strategic connection to classroom content
