Social and Emotional Learning & Environmental Education: Perfect Together

August 19 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Spend a day outdoors alongside like-minded educators to dive into how environmental education and social emotional learning go hand in hand.

The focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) has increased for teachers and districts in the past several years as student wellness has become a key consideration in classroom environments.

The NJ School of Conservation, a leader in the field of environmental education (EE) that has taught youth to develop empathy, knowledge and problem solving strategies for almost 75 years, is offering a professional development workshop to share what we’ve learned.

During this workshop, teachers will:

– Learn about the NJ Department of Education’s SEL Competencies

– Understand how environmental education and SEL go hand in hand

– Develop skills and acquire resources to create SEL lessons and EE activities in the classroom

– Feel recharged and inspired after working alongside like-minded colleagues

– Experience what a NJSOC field experience is like for students

Fee includes continental breakfast, lunch and all workshop materials. Teachers may earn up to 6 professional development hours upon completion of this workshop.
