Helping at-risk students has become an increasingly complex job for special educators. Amidst the rigor of new curriculum standards and the ever-growing impact of technology, we are challenged to help all students be ready and eager to learn when they enter the classroom. Distractions, fears, and lack of social emotional competence especially impair minority students from gaining what they need from their school experience. Providing effective ways for students to acquire social emotional skills will allow them to succeed with their studies and their lives. Dr. Ed Dunkelblau, a world-renowned expert in Social Emotional Learning (SEL) will unpack the specific skills, explain why they are important, and during the audience Q&A, you'll get answers to your questions about how incorporating SEL skill acquisition strategies will empower at-risk students in your schools.
