Building Connections: Environmental Literacy and Social Emotional Learning

Presenter: Jen Code
Session 2 | Redwood


When students are more socially and emotionally aware it gives them the opportunity to see from another’s perspective and develop empathy for all living things. Familiarizing students with environmental topics through meaningful texts and imagery allows them to deepen their connection to the world. Techniques in the classroom for social emotional learning, written expression, art and collaborative discussions will be shared.
