How Outschool Works

In this ongoing class, we will revisit many of the topics that we learned in “Exploring My Social Emotional World: A Social Emotional Camp Upper Elementary” and “Exploring My Social Emotional World: A Social Emotional Class Upper Elementary”. Learners will have an opportunity to strengthen and develop the skills they learned in the previous course, through discussion, practice and repetition. Each week we will do games and activities that will reinforce social and emotional skills, such as...
1. Learners will work on building a growth mindset. 2. Learners will improve their ability to focus and be engaged during conversations. 3. Learners will improve their ability to manage their feelings. 4. Learners will continue to work on tools for resolving conflict with others. 5. Learners will improve their strategies for including others and asking to be included. 6. Learners will continue to build an awareness of feelings in others. 7. Learners will continue to recognize, act and make plans for incidents that involve bullying. 8. Learners will improve their problem solving and collaboration skills.
I have had extensive training in the area of Social Emotional Learning, including specialized areas of Growth Mindset, Bullying, Trauma Informed Care, and Virtual SEL. Most of my SEL training has come through CASEL, Second Step, Conscious Discipline, EdWeb, Deeper Learning, Colorado Shines and Early Childhood Investigations.
This class does not have typical homework assigned. However, learners will be encouraged to practice the concepts discussed and incorporate them into their daily life. For example, learners will be encouraged to practice methods learned for managing their emotions; learners will be encouraged to practice techniques learned for focusing their attention. These will not be assigned homework tasks that will take additional time, outside of class, but rather practices that learners can do to improve their wellbeing. In addition, some learners may choose to do additional growth mindset activities, on their own. These will be provided but not required.
A notebook or journal Pen or pencil Crayons or colored pencils I will post notes in the classroom. These can be printed, if desired, but it is not mandatory.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment will be given. Informal assessment will be made based on discussion and participation by learners and can be provided at parent request.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please review the topics of discussion for each week. While we have covered each of these subjects in the prerequisite classes, some parents may feel some subjects are not appropriate for their child. I have had extensive training to teach each topic to children, at an age appropriate manner, and will adhere to the training I have received. I also ensure that all discussions stay within Outschool's policies for sensitive content.
I'm passionate about helping children see that they can change the world and it begins within themselves.
