Social Emotional Engagement
Within a Universal Design for Learning Classroom
Presenter: Emily Rubin, M.S., CCC-SLP
November 30, 2017 - Avon, Indiana
Sponsored by the Indiana Resource Center for Autism
In Collaboration with Avon Community Schools
Research in the neuroscience of social emotional engagement fosters our ability to educate children with social emotional learning differences while supporting a universal design for learning for all students. The Social Emotional Engagement – Knowledge and Skills (SEE-KS) program will be shared as a framework for fostering social emotional engagement, presenting information in multiple ways, and promoting student participation and relationships. Creating a classroom setting and lesson plans with these elements creates a more desirable and predictable environment for our students to learn. Participants will take away strategies for measuring student engagement, designing instruction to address SEL competencies, and building capacity through teacher-to-teacher mentorship.
1. As a result of this activity, the participant will be able identify implications of social neuroscience that impact how we design lesson plans.
2. As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to identify three essential instructional domains of social emotional engagement that contribute to a positive learning environment and the development of social emotional learning competencies.
3. As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to apply a checklist of instructional elements for fostering student engagement in a range of educational settings.
