Online Only | Are you looking for ways to further develop the social, emotional and behavioral development of your young students?  Would you like to incorporate more character-based lessons into your curriculum?  Are you interested in learning fun and engaging ways to address social skills that go beyond “reading the story?” If you answered “yes” then this course is for you! We will begin by previewing the Social Emotional Learning Standards developed by the Illinois State Board of Education. We will continue by gaining exposure to children’s literature that focuses on character, values, social skills and positive behaviors. A few authors that will be showcased include Julia Cook, Michelle Garcia Winner, Todd Parr and Kathryn Otoshi. This course is geared toward primary grades (K-4).

Several days prior to the start of the course, participants receive an email with instructions for accessing the course. A week’s material is posted at the start of each week.  Participants are expected to read content and review various resources, write replies/answer questions, share experiences, and engage in discussions with the course facilitator and other participants.  None of the assignments are completed in "real-time;" you can work at the times that best suit your own schedule.
