Grade 6 Extension Program: Online Registration


The Pro-Social Educator

Overview
This workshop series explores how enhancing educators’ social and emotional competency (SEC) can help increase their engagement in teaching, strengthen their relationships with students, and improve their stress management, all of which lead to improved student outcomes.

Through interactive exercises, participants examine the connection between self-management and effective teaching, learn to identify early signs of burnout, reconnect to their identity as a teacher, and develop a self-care plan for managing stress. We review the latest research related to adult SEC and how it can support effective classroom management and adult emotional regulation. Participants examine their relationships with their most challenging students and strategize ways to develop better relationships with these students and their families.

Participation in this program includes:

  • Three 2-hour workshops
  • Baseline and outcome assessments
  • Three sessions of consultation with principal
  • Open Circle Pro-Social Educator Manual for each participant
  • 6 Professional Development hours

Who Should Attend

The Relational Educator
for all School Staff

Overview
This workshop series explores the links between adult relationships, effective teaching and school climate. Research has indicated that a critical component to student success is the ability of the adults in the school community to create a collegial climate.

At these sessions, participants focus on three key ingredients to a healthy school climate among adults: trust, communication, and collaboration. Through interactive exercises, reflection activities, surveys, and a review of research, participants assess the current functioning of the adult community at their school, connect their current practice as an educator with desired outcomes, and create action plans to support ongoing work. Participants explore their relationships with colleagues and have the opportunity to work within existing teams, such as by grade level, to reach their goals.

Participation in this program includes:

  • Three 2-hour workshops
  • Baseline and outcome assessments
  • Three sessions of consultation with principal
  • Open Circle Relational Educator Manual for each participant
  • 6 Professional Development hours
