new perspectives on educational practices
Custom Professional Development for School Staff and Educators
Our professional development programs are designed for K-12 teachers, specialists, school administrators, and pre-service teachers to integrate experiential learning into the classroom. Share best practices with other educators while learning activities and methods for engaging students and simultaneously meeting state standards. Educators and administrators will gain new perspectives on their own educational practices while having their own “aha” experience with their peers.
Topics include: Social & Emotional Learning, Experiential Education, Diversity & Inclusion, Anti-bullying & Empathy; and Creating a Positive School Culture.

Social and Emotional Learning
A Book and Training: Social and Emotional Learning in Action: Experiential Activities to Positively Impact School Climate
About the Book
Social and Emotional Learning in Action (SELA) provides a developmentally sequenced year-long, modular flow or stand-alone lessons that integrate the benefits of experiential and social emotional learning into the classroom. The pedagogical bases for these lessons are shaped around the research findings of CASEL’s core competencies.
Each of the 36 lessons start with the intended theme, focus, and activities, including their anticipated time frames and required materials. Preview lesson one below:SELA book_preview
“Social-Emotional Learning in Action should be on the bookshelf of every teacher, counselor, and group facilitator. The activities are well sequenced, easy to implement, and powerfully designed to build group trust, respect, and efficacy. This book is a go-to resource for helping students of all ages become their best selves.”
