This interactive 90-minute webinar for school leaders and teachers will review the equity-minded additions CASEL made to their competencies. These competencies—including examining our own biases and working with others to create change—are vital for teachers seeking to create a more just educational environment. We will read excerpts from stories youth have written, about their own experiences with racism and injustice at school. How do these experiences impact students’ self- perception and academic success, and what role do educators play? Participants will reflect on these new equity-minded competencies and share strategies to strengthen their SEL skills to create the schools and classrooms we all envision. With special guest: Dr. Robert J. Jagers, Vice President of Research, CASEL. Hosted by Youth Communication.
