Tools for Gauging Social-Emotional Learning and School Climate in the Classroom

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT

The U.S. Department of Education’s Education Innovation and Research program (EIR) announces an upcoming webinar featuring grantee organizations in conversation about the tools they use to measure social-emotional learning (SEL).

SEL and school climate are increasingly recognized as essential elements of a supportive and healthy learning environment, but they can be difficult to quantify. This webinar will introduce attendees to three tools for gauging SEL, as told by grantees who already use them successfully.

Featured speakers will include:

  • Veronica Tate, The Rural Math Innovation Network team from Virginia Advanced Study Strategies
  • Brit’ny Stein, Project Engage from the Osage County Interlocal Cooperative
  • Jenny Ventura, Seneca Family of Agencies

Anne Chamberlain, Community Co-Lead for the EIR SEL community of practice, will moderate the discussion, which will include a Q&A with the presenters.

We will use Adobe Connect online meeting software to conduct our session. Instructions are provided below.
