Social-Emotional Learning & PBIS

- Have the conversation: It starts by getting the teachers in a powwow to find out what issues (i.e., tardiness, bullying, disrespect, etc.) are most prevalent and needing to be addressed.
- Create a curriculum: Tap into Shmoop’s teaching guides, online courses, and lesson plans to support your district’s specific social-emotional learning needs.Then, everyone works together to execute on these strategies (i.e., incentives, school-wide rules and routines, verbal praise, etc.)
- Finally, look at the data: (e.g., number of office referrals) to see how things are working out and where you may need to shift focus.
