Feedback form is now closed.
Participants will learn about the benefits to students when social and emotional skills are explicitly taught in the classrooms. We will explore the RULER tool developed by the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and learn associated techniques to implement this in classrooms. Case studies from Horizons Atlanta classrooms where RULER has been implemented show changes in classroom dynamics such as less bullying and aggressive behavior, better relationships, and enhanced academic performance. Participants will leave with a working knowledge of the RULER components Charter and Mood Meter as well as resource materials for their classrooms.
