    Description: 

    Join us this Spring as we get back to better.  We are hosting two showcase Capturing Kids' Hearts(R) trainings.  Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis for district administrators or campus-level principals in districts new to our processes.

    Capturing Kids' Hearts(R) is the premier source of professional development for educators nationwide.  Through in-person and virtual trainings, expert coaching, and ongoing support Capturing Kids' Hearts(R) equips teachers, coaches, administrators, and district leaders to implement transformational processes focused on social-emotional wellbeing, relationship-driven culture, and student connectedness.

    With the impacts of COVID-19, ever-increasing diversity, challenges, trauma and social unrest, there has never been a more critical time to have a process to draw out the greatness in all students.

    Teachers in Capturing Kids' Hearts(R) schools and districts report a higher rate of job satisfaction, while principals see a dramatic reduction in truancy.  Administrators report district-wide impact with improvements in test scores, reduced disciplinary escalations, fewer dropouts, and a reduction of negative behaviors such as isolation, violence, early sexuality, and substance use.

                         A Webinar with Presenter Nancy Frey!

    All Learning is Social and Emotional:

    Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond

    Live Online!

    When:  Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 7:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. (Pacific time) 

    Registration deadline is 4/22/2021 for this meeting  

    Description: 

    While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalized programs separate from academics, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional.

    If you teach kids rather than standards, and if you want all kids to get what they need to thrive, Nancy Frey offers a solution: a comprehensive, five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, no matter what subject or grade level you teach.  You'll learn the hows and why of:

    • Building students' sense of identity and confidence in their ability to learn, overcome challenge, and influence the world around them.
    • Helping students identify, describe, and regulate their emotional responses.
    • Promoting the cognitive regulation skills critical to decision making and problem solving. 
    • Fostering students' social skills, including teamwork and sharing, and their ability to establish and repair relationships.
    • Equipping students to becoming informed and involved citizens.

    Along with a toolbox of strategies for addressing 33 essential competencies, you'll find real-life examples highlighting the many opportunities for social and emotional learning within the K-12 academic curriculum.  Learn to use this Integrated SEL approach to help your students build essential skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.

    Limitless Minds:

    Learn, Lead and Live without Barriers

    When:  Thursday, May 6, 2021 - 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Pacific time) 

    Registration deadline is 4/29/2021 or until seats are sold out! 

    Who should attend:  Teachers, Administrators, Coaches, Counselors, anyone wanting to improve leading and learning

    Description: 

    Recent years have seen an explosion of scientific evidence, from neuroscience, psychology and education showing that there is a different way to teach and learn, available to us all.  When people take a limitless approach to learning - in content areas and in life - different pathways open up to them, leading to higher, more equitable and more enjoyable achievement.  Mindset messages are important but they do not take root unless they are accompanied by a multiplicity approach to content and life.

    In this workshop, Dr. Boaler will expand on the best practices presented in Mathematical Mindsets by revealing six keys to unlock learning potential across all content areas and in life. She will share the explosion of scientific evidence from neuroscience, psychology and education that supports a different way to teach and learn—one that creates equitable and engaging learning.

    Dr Jo Boaler is the Nomellini & Olivier Professor of Education at Stanford
    University. Former roles have included being the Marie Curie Professor of Mathematics Education in England, and a maths teacher in London comprehensive schools. She is a White House presenter on women and girls. She recently formed youcubed.org to give teachers, parents and students the resources they need to excite students about mathematics. She was named by the BBC as one of the 8 educators “changing the face of education”.

    Registration includes:

    A copy of Jo's Book "Limitless Mind"

    Fearless Schools

    Free Webinar

    When:  Thursday, May 13, 2021 - 3:30 p.m. (Pacific time) 

    Description: 

    Fearless SchoolsWith the fear and uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic impact that follows, teachers, leaders, students, and parents need fearless schools.  The core of fearless schools, Dr. Reeves explains, is psychological safety.  In this interactive presentation, he explains how leaders and teachers build and maintain trust and psychological safety, and how sometimes these ideals are inadvertently destroyed.  Participants will engage in rich discussion and reflection based on a large body of 21st Century evidence.  Special attention is paid to resilience - bouncing back from physical, emotional, and psychic injury.

    DESCRIPTION:

    Breakout Sessions

    We all agree that Social Emotional Learning is more important now than ever.  However, many of us still struggle with what SEL should look and sound like in our schools, especially this fall.

    Join experts in over 50 breakout sessions to learn the “How” behind SEL implementation and integration. 

    These hands-on workshops are great for folks who are looking to combine equity work, EdTech tools, trauma-informed practices and well-being strategies with practical SEL application.

    Let’s move SEL from “one more thing” on teachers’ plates to a vehicle that elevates student voice and agency across classrooms!
