Authenticity in the Classroom: An Introduction to Authenticity Based Social-Emotional Learning

January Intensive:

January 11th and 12th, 10 am - 5:30 pm


In order to grow into engaged, productive adults, children must have the opportunity and the support to develop their authentic selves.  This series of hands-on sessions will demonstrate lessons, routines, and discussion techniques that foster a culture of authenticity and demonstrate how existing curriculum can support social- emotional learning. When educators develop a culture of authenticity in their classroom, they help students build the emotional competence, confidence, and social skills that allow them to thrive both academically and socially. Participants will walk away with an implementation plan for bringing authenticity based social-emotional learning into their classroom or school community.


This course is offered in connection with ASPDP and the New York City Department of Education. Participants will be eligible for CTLE and P-Credits and A+ Credits.
