**PRE-REGISTRATION (on formal registration site) + FEE ARE REQUIRED**
Students thrive in high school classrooms that embrace developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive teaching, and foster a relational approach to learning. Creating this environment by design requires intention and planning. How can teachers intentionally create content that simultaneously challenges students and integrates academic, social, and emotional learning? What are the features of a classroom where teachers actively partner with students to engage in respectful interactions, while holding high standards and expectations for every learner?

Participants will engage in real-time experiences to create classrooms where students feel affirmed, where their voices are heard and honored, and where their developmental and cultural needs are met. Together we will explore practical approaches to embed social and emotional learning competencies that foster students’ capacity to be self-directed, independent learners.

Participants will explore how teachers can intentionally create content that is challenging and seamlessly integrates social and emotional learning with academic learning. They will learn what it takes to design classroom experiences where teachers actively partner with students to engage in respectful interactions, while teaching rigorous content with high standards and expectations.
