Tan shares 5 specific strategies to meaningfully integrate emotional intelligence into our already packed teaching schedules.  The framework he will share can be applied K-12 and the specific examples that he will share come from his teaching experience (5-12). He even allows us to see and listen to his synchronous time with his students.  This was a highly interactive session and so you might want to check out the chat transcript and the video version at shiftingschools.com under the resource menu.

This webinar will explore the connection between these things and provide examples of how to create racially and culturally conscious safe space in classrooms.
