The Power of Showing Up PLC

Presenter: Anna Reeve

In this professional learning community (PLC), practitioners will read and implement strategies from Daniel Siegel’s The Power of Showing Up. Over the course of six weekly sessions, we’ll discuss how to implement what Siegel refers to as the 4 S’s (Safe, Seen, Soothed, Secured). While this PLC is open to all, the content covered in the book will feel most applicable to grades K-8.

By attending this series, attendees will leave with…

– A greater understanding of how brain development and attachment impacts social emotional learning.
– Strategies to foster social emotional learning in both a virtual classroom, as well as in preparation for our classrooms in the fall.
– A network of educators inspired to increase SEL in their classrooms and better support students’ emotional development.

Please note that all Collaborative events will be hosted online for the Spring 2021 semester.
