Ask Yourself If:

  • You want to give teachers a way to make content more engaging
  • You want to embed social emotional learning in your educational practices…
  • You want students to critically think and develop a voice in conversations…
  • You want to promote equity and culturally responsive teaching…

Why It Matters:

When amazing conversations are happening in classrooms, a foundation of social emotional support is created that fuels student engagement, language acquisition and academic learning.

Great Conversations Are Critical

“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.”  

 Poet and Author – Criss Jami, Salomé
