with Darlene Machacon
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is an educational buzzword that many music teachers may have difficulty weaving within their already jam-packed teaching schedules. Without guidance, it can also be a challenge to teach with a lens beyond surface-level multiculturalism. In this webinar, teachers will develop an understanding of transformative SEL and what that can look like in the music room. With belonging, identity, and empathy being the main focus, teachers will receive inspiration for student-centered lessons using children’s literature and technology.
Participants will walk away with lesson ideas for grades Kindergarten - 8th grade. Lessons will include slides with helpful links.
You are welcome to participate live or watch the recording as your schedule allows. All registrants will receive a link to the live Zoom webinar and an email afterward with instructions to access the recording and downloadable materials.
In addition, a certificate of completion for 1.5 hours can be provided to participants who request one for professional development hours.
