This blended-learning symposium will use real-life examples to highlight the many opportunities for social and emotional learning within the K-12 academic curriculum. In this unique environment, participants will have the chance to interact with the authors directly via a live stream, while processing their learning in small groups with professional facilitators at several locations across our state.
