Presentation: Structured Storytelling
Strand: Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
Building relationships with our students that lead to better behaviors and academics in or classroom can make all the difference during our school year. This presentation is how educators can use the science of stories to build relationships of trust with their students that will help with classroom management, and academics. With a continuous integration of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) into classrooms, educators are seeking strategies and interventions to build relationships of trust with students. Structured Storytelling helps educators build and facilitate these important relationships.
