Building Social Emotional Skills through Personalized Advising

Session 1
Natalie Ferrell, Cathleen Collazo, Angie Aponte, Sabrina Fernandez, Daniel Lipford

How can you use one-on-one advising to meet young people where they are, build strong relationships and fortify student's confidence, self-advocacy, reflectiveness and prioritization skills? At SBC, we meet with students bi-weekly and set personalized goals. Join us to jumpstart advising at your school/district or take your advising practice to the next level.

Social Emotional Learning and Brave Spaces in a STEM Classroom

Session 4
Andrea Poulsen, Stefanie Bingham

Discover how SEL activities can enliven curriculum and deepen student connections. The FirstHand team shares tools from the evidence-based CASEL framework, and how these practices have impacted the outcomes of our informal STEM program. Attendees will participate in a fishbowl discussion called Brave Spaces prompted by a student-created question.

Queering the Classroom - Co-Designing to Create Brave, Inclusive Classrooms

Session 5
Andre Zarate, Lauren Overton

Through the Equity X Design Framework, we are going to take a critical look at the idea of belonging that builds a brave space for all children, but centering Queer Youth. We will discuss what it means to design at the margins, what a transformative classroom looks like, what transformative environments look like, and how to co-create & co-design with youth through a design sprint.
