15717: Building Cultures of Care in Our Classrooms
We know now more than ever the importance of caring for our students’ social-emotional health. Join NCCAT virtually on February 12, 2021 from 9:00 to 11:00 am to explore strategies that encourage the social emotional health of students and build cultures of care in our classrooms. Based on the work of Hemphill (2020) and Sprenger (2020), we will learn ways to acknowledge our students’ needs and build trust and care in our classrooms. Throughout this session, participants will have opportunities to collaborate about this critical topic with colleagues across NC and discuss implementing these strategies in their classrooms. This session is intended for any K-12 teacher, instructional coach, or school leader.
No classes are being offered at this time for this course.
