SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Child Mind Institute launched the California Healthy Minds, Thriving Kids Project in partnership with the State of California. This platform of free video and print-based mental health and wellness resources for educators, caregivers, and students is designed to promote children’s emotional health and help us all thrive.
The videos, offered in Spanish and English, include introductions for caregivers and educators that provide an overview of the project, the importance of self-care, and signs that kids may need extra help. Video modules (roughly five minutes each) are tailored for each of three different age groups — elementary, middle, and high school — with five videos for each group.
MOVE, GROOVE & GROW: A TEACHER'S RESOURCE FOR SEL
Youth in Arts and the Marin County Office of Education released a 6-part video series for integrating kinesthetic experiences into the classroom to foster Social Emotional Learning (SEL). This course provides additional framework, ideas, tangible resources, and encouragement for promoting SEL in this NEW way of teaching. The course follows the student resource "Move, Groove & Grow: My Thoughts and Feelings Through Movement" with videos and activities for teachers who want a ready-made learning experience to bring to their classrooms!
Additionally, this course provides a number of science-learning resources for content introduced in the video series.
