SEL for Tween Girls: Modern-Day Video + Dialogue
A Microsoft diversity and inclusion leader and former middle school teacher brings a modern-day approach to SEL in the classroom, meeting students where they are: watching video! Soci Circle is a multi-award-winning web series starring a diverse cast of tween girls who talk openly about their social challenges. Each episode is followed by life-changing dialogue that increases girls’ kindness, confidence and empathy. Participants will be introduced to the curriculum and rewards-based measurement.
