How do we wake up our young people to who they are and what their lives can become? What if we need to develop a new “growth heartset” to compliment and enhance a positive “growth mindset”? We may think that their minds are ready to learn, but what may not be ready are our students’ “hearts”. As Aristotle wrote, “educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.” When the heart is set in a healthy and compassionate place, the mind is more open and prepared to learn.
In order to experience the benefits of Social Emotional Learning (SEL), we need to move beyond principles and curricula. How do we instill SEL in both ourselves as practitioners and in our programs’ culture so that we teach and lead by authentic example?
Come and learn skills for developing a new “growth heartset” in our teaching and learning. This interactive session focuses on shaping successful learning environments that thrive upon a foundation infused with caring, connectivity, and proven SEL practices.
Based on EduCare’s field-tested ACE Program that has reached nearly 50,000 students in the U.S. and internationally, participants learn and practice heart-centered strategies for teaching students’ self-awareness (mindfulness), emotional self-management, relationship-building, and wise decision-making skills. Included is an introduction to EduCare’s “8 Heart-Centered Teaching & Learning Skills”.
