TPCSA is excited to host Bryan Carroll to speak about social/emotional learning for charter school leaders! With his non-profit organization - Community Under Reconstruction through Education (CURE) - Bryan seeks to infuse youth to be strong mentally, socially, emotionally, and academically; specializing in diverse intellectual and physical activities and training programs related to human development. Bryan recently authored a children's book entitled "Super Sharing" and will be releasing its follow-up, "Super Strong" in 2020. Currently, Bryan teaches middle school in Houston and is working to open an early childhood education center that will focus on building foundational literary skills.
For this webinar, we will discuss tools that educators can leverage to meet their students, their schools, and the intertwining culture where they are. Session attendees will gain an understanding of and an ability to connect Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to inform their instruction. A portion of the session will be dedicated to discussing the impact of social determinants. More specifically, concepts around equity and equality and the impact of these differences on educational success. We will also touch on the importance of IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), learning styles, and counter intuitive responses to the classroom needs. These high level concepts will allow educators to create an environment ripe for learning despite challenges that students may face outside of the classroom. As a result of attending this session, the educators will have a clear and concise vision on how to lead based on best practices for our youth. Our work demonstrates that bringing social and emotional learning needs to the forefront, in combination with an understanding of school culture, optimizes our ability as educators to manage the needs of our students thereby promoting learning. Please join us for this interactive webinar on April 15th at 9 am!
