Social emotional learning is more than just helping students be social. Amber Chandler shows how middle school educators can be intentional about seeing their students for who they are, growing relationships, and building community.
Grounded in classroom experience, her practical strategies can be adapted to suit different needs, so you can create a Flexible Classroom and reach all learners. Topics include encouraging academic risk-taking without fear of failure; helping students self-manage; teaching self-awareness; modeling responsible decision-making and empathy; building relationship skills; and emboldening students to become more socially aware.
This updated second edition features new chapters on running restorative circles and focusing on resilience instead of deficit analysis. There is also a special section with post pandemic takeaways, as we learn new ways to help students thrive.
Praise for The Flexible SEL Classroom
Amber’s book is a practical “how-to” focused on what all teachers need right now, ways to be flexible and nimble while meeting the varied social and emotional needs of their students. As an exemplary teacher herself, she talks the talk and walks the walk.
