Webinar: A Culturally Responsive Approach to Social and Emotional Learning (3/4/2021 at 3:00pm) (Voyager Sopris Learning)


David Adams spent almost seven years as the Director of Social and Emotional Learning at Urban Assembly, where he and his team works with a network of 22 urban schools in New York to ensure that all staff and students receive relevant experiences and purposeful instruction to develop the social emotional competencies that impact students’ success in school, work, and life.

David’s wide-reaching (and international) experience gives him a unique perspective with how and why implementing social and emotional learning for all students is important for the future success of each individual student.

In this insightful and applicable presentation, attendees will learn the importance of implementing Culturally Responsive SEL that creates relevance through engagement, impacting students and staff beyond the classroom. Our respected presenter will share examples of how to directly develop and practice these skills during instruction in class, after school, in sports and into the community, and why all students should be given access to SEL skills without having to learn them through adversity or challenge.

As our presenter describes SEL for educators looks like, attendees will learn:

  • How Urban Assembly’s approach to social and emotional learning relies on innovation and helps struggling students become more successful
  • What Culturally Responsive SEL is, and the specific strategies used by Urban Assembly that boost student engagement and academic performance
  • The importance of equity and SEL, and ways you can give every student the opportunity to learn these skills
