In the arena of social-emotional learning (SEL), asking "why" can take us away from our emotions and into our heads to explain why.
"Why did you decide to skip school yesterday?" causes a shift into devising (in our head) a reason for our past behavior. The question itself has emotional overtones that skipping school yesterday was a bad thing to do. Maybe it was a chance just to hand out and decompress. Or maybe she skipped school to take care of her ailing grandmother on a day when her mother wasn’t going to be available.
Meet with fellow educators at different schools and share your experience in being back at school with a classroom full of students. What are you discovering? What is working? What is not working?
Join your fellow educators on Wednesday, April 28th, 7-8pm on Zoom, for what is sure to be an engaging hour.
