BUILDING COMMUNITY & INTEGRATING SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING IN MATHEMATICS

The Building Community and Social Emotional Learning is set-up as a two series that can be broken up into two smaller chunks of 3 sessions (Building Community and Social Emotional Learning)  and 4 sessions (Community Circles and Social Emotional Learning). They can also be done independently of each other.

At the end of the full series teachers will be able to understand how to

  • Use the essential elements as a frame of mind to understand, analyze and measure mathematics community.

  • Co-develop, utilize and redefine community norms.

  • Facilitate community circles for building and restoring community, as well as to discuss mathematics.

  • Utilize the 3 SEL signature practices to establish and develop the essential elements within the mathematics community.

  • Facilitate mathematics to develop the representation of mathematics, growth mindset and community of discourse essential elements of a mathematics community.

  • Use a survey to analyze and design development in specific elements of the mathematics community.

The first 3 sessions focus on building community based on the assumption you are starting with new students at the start of the school  year. The second 4 sessions will focus on community circles, and can be done independently of the first 3.
