Principals and other school administrators understand the importance of establishing a forward-thinking vision for their schools and districts to support social, academic, emotional, and cultural learning—all critical foundations for child development. In fact, research shows that schools and districts that value and promote social learning can increase academic achievement by 11% and those who teach tenacity see academic benefits as well. This bundle provides four unique, complementary ways to understand and support the diverse social learning needs of students ages 5-18+ while promoting self-awareness, self-regulation, and well-being for all students.

The Whole-Brain Child

This book explores the role different parts of our brains play in managing our own behavior. The authors, a neuropsychiatrist and a parenting expert, illustrate how teaching children about their brains can help them learn to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development, in addition to self-management, in order to foster balanced lives that include healthy relationships, success in school, responsible behavior, and positive self-regard. Written for use with children, in language and images they can understand, this book explains and visually depicts simplified neurology paired with 12 concrete metacognitive strategies to help children learn how to better control their actions and reactions.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss why children, students, and adults may resist help or refuse to ask for it and we’ll deconstruct the multi-step process through which we ask for help. We’ll also explore the social emotional benefits for all participating in this unique and rewarding relationship.
