Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past three years, all Nisswa Elementary staff have been on a journey to better understand, measure, and teach social skills to all, while also establishing a system of support around SEL. Staff have received over 40 hours of staff development, been supplied with the We Thinker’s resources, developed a social emotional rubric, assessed all students using rubrics (three times per year), planned lessons based on the data, aligned our Think Sheets and restorative practices, and embarked on developing tiered levels of support. The presentation will encompass one school’s journey to support students in acquiring lifelong social emotional skills.
