Webinar “Moving Toward a ProSocial Culture: Mastering the Moment”

Students, teachers, and principals are constantly inundated with new curricula, strategies, and priorities. These shifting elements of the education industry coupled with increasing politicization, community pressure, and professional demands can lead to tense, unproductive, and often AntiSocial learning experiences.

In order to move towards ProSocial experiences for staff and for students, we must consider how to make the most of our moments. In this edWebinar, attendees will connect student beliefs to behaviors and outcomes, strategize around the creation of meaningful moments, and learn about simple tools that help teachers consistently use a series of individual moments to guide students on their ProSocial Journey.

This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and those involved with counseling, student services, and SEL departments. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
