In order for students to be successful academically, they need to be emotionally and mentally ready to learn. Educators will need strategies for using data to quickly identify and provide social-emotional learning (SEL) opportunities to promote emotional well-being and resilience. Knowing which data to use, and how to structure it, is especially important so that we can identify trauma-related or other universal and individual student needs in order to restart learning successfully.

In this session, you will learn:

– Research-based guidance for meeting students’ mental and emotional needs in the context of the school closures

– Strategies for maximizing universal supports around the new needs of students

– Data-driven approaches for identifying students who are most at-risk

– Methods for disaggregating and analyzing data to ensure supports are Equitable and not disproportionate.
