One of K-12 public education’s core purposes is to prepare young people to be informed and engaged citizens in our democracy. Recent events and phenomena, including the January 6th insurrection, the rise of fake news, and toxicity in political discourse, have made this all the more necessary. Additionally, many of our young people are eager today to play a positive and constructive role in their communities and our democracy. The Educating for American Democracy initiative which has been championed by the National Association of Elementary School Principals, Association for Middle Level Educators, and the National Association of Secondary School Principals provides a tangible Roadmap to achieve K-12 education’s civic aspirations.

Join us in this collaborative webinar as leadership across these associations and leading members discuss actions school leaders can take to leverage this initiative in supporting a more robust and powerful civic and history education for all learners.

Executive Functioning: What it really means, and how to apply it in your classroom tomorrow!

The path to learning and a calm classroom, remote or in person, is a calm brain. The disruption of our students’ routines during COVID-19 has had a serious impact on their executive functioning skills – the core of SEL. As our students continue to learn online, or return to the classroom, it will be more important than ever to equip them with the skills to self-regulate, understand each other, and develop the brain functioning and social skills that will help them adapt and succeed.

Join our expert panel of teachers and neuroscientists in this virtual 2-day workshop about executive functioning in young adolescents. Explore the key science & research behind executive functioning - including the impact of trauma, autism, & ADHD. Uncover the most effective executive functioning strategies for students of all abilities and ages. And understand the myths and realities around executive functioning - including educator learning pearls, and practical strategies you can apply with your students tomorrow!

Presenter: Tim Elmore

Stress, anxiety, and other challenges are now a norm for many of the students in school today. Due to these challenges, students are missing classes, disengaging from interaction in physical and virtual classrooms because they are overwhelmed, and experiencing conflict with peers due to their inability to manage their emotions. This session collates years of research to give school leaders a practical guide on how to instill the social and emotional skills students need to make better decisions both in school and outside of school.
