Developing Embodied SEL: How to Easily Integrate Service Learning into Your Classroom
By helping others, we actually help ourselves, too! When we empower kids to believe that they can make a difference in the world, and then we give them the opportunity to actually practice helping others, they unlock powerful mental health outcomes for themselves. We call this type of service learning “embodied SEL,” and although integrating a service-learning program may sound intimidating, it can be very simple (and free).
Join this edWebinar to learn:
- How to use the UNICEF Kid Power program, a free, interactive video platform that connects students’ activity within the platform to real-world support that UNICEF and its partners deliver to children and families in need globally and locally.
- Ways to build classroom community and keep students motivated.
- Specific whole-child benefits (social emotional, mental health, physical health and academic) for students who participate in UNICEF Kid Power.
- Best practices for implementing a service-learning program into your classroom or school (for both in-person and virtual learning).
- Where to access 150+ SEL and physical activity videos (featuring characters, celebrities, and athletes that kids know and love) to help students regulate emotions, explore identity, develop resilience, discuss difficult topics (racism, adjusting to new situations, and more), relax, and refocus through brain breaks.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, school counselors, teachers of students with special needs, and PE teachers of the kindergarten through elementary levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
