Participants in the Recipe for Regulation workshop will increase their understanding of Social-Emotional Learning and within that, the role of self-regulation and mindfulness. This workshop is an overview that will serve both as an introduction to those new to teaching social-emotional learning and will also provide the next step for those that already have some knowledge. Participants will learn how to leverage the core and curricular competencies to nurture these skills for all learners at different levels and to develop a foundation for culture of social and emotional growth with Universal Designs for Learning in mind. They will have the information and the tools to start following a Recipe for Regulation in their classroom on Monday!
