Reading Plus announces webinar on socio-emotional learning
WINOOSKI, VT, March 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Reading Plus, an evidence-based online program that uses personalized instruction to improve students’ reading fluency, today announced its professional development webinar with Education week, “For the love of reading and of oneself: making the link between success in reading and socio-emotional learning”. Led by Janine Walker Caffrey, Research Director of Reading Plus, and Community Manager La’Keisha Ciprian, the hour-long session will take place on Friday March 26 at noon ET.
Socio-emotional learning (SEL) is the process by which children and adults develop their ability to understand and manage emotions, to set and achieve positive goals, to feel empathy for others, build positive relationships and make responsible decisions.
“After a year of living and working through a global health crisis, educators can use socio-economic learning strategies to help students develop problem-solving skills, self-regulation and social awareness,” Walker Caffrey said. “We are excited to empower teachers on Social and Emotional Learning Day and demonstrate that the impact of what students read in class goes far beyond academics. “
The webinar will cover:
- The relationship between reading proficiency and SEL
- How motivation to read can stimulate student growth
- Strategies to Help Students Engage More in Reading
- Classroom success stories
