SEL and Restorative Practices: School-Wide Integration and Practice

Sunday February 11, 2018
1:00 - 2:30 PM
Room 121

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Restorative Practices (RP) are core elements in many schools’ academic and climate improvement efforts. They are powerfully complementary and used together can help develop an authentically safe and supportive school climate and reduce disproportionate discipline. This session will highlight strategies used, and lessons learned, through an integrated SEL and RP implementation at Charles W. Henry School in Philadelphia. Presenters will actively engage participants to 1) explore and discuss what educators need to successfully implement integrated RP and SEL strategies, 2) experience the basic elements of a restorative circle, and 3) take away practical integration tools and strategies for staff training, implementation support and sustainability of SEL and RP.
