Bringing SEL 'Nuggets' to Maryland

August 27, 2014

The Montgomery County, Maryland, public schools wanted to introduce teachers to social and emotional learning strategies - so they called on Morningside Center's executive director, Tom Roderick.

In his workshop with teachers on August 20, Tom pulled out a few SEL "nuggets" from our decades of work in the schools - practical strategies teachers can use to build classroom community and students' SEL skills. See this cool 3-minute video of Tom's interactive workshop, produced by the Montgomery County public schools. 

In the coming weeks we'll be sharing some of these "nuggets" here on the blog. Check back to learn more about put-ups & put-downs, problem solving approaches, and more.  

Meanwhile, see these stories and reflections from our staff and the teachers we work with on put-ups, put-downs, and The Heart Story, one of the 'nuggets' Tom shared with the Maryland teachers.
