Join us for this professional development experience to support teachers, coaches, and teacher educators in learning how to:

  • Teach and coach with a social, emotional, and cultural lens 
  • Meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of students so they can succeed and thrive
  • Respond to the turmoil of racism and marginalization within society
  • Meet their own social and emotional needs so they can truly be present

Whether teaching online or in person, you will learn how to apply the Social, Emotional and Cultural (SEC) competencies:

  • Build trusting relationships
  • Foster self-reflection
  • Foster growth mindset

  • Create community
  • Promote collaborative learning
  • Respond constructively across differences

Integrate the SEC anchor competencies into your teaching/coaching practice by:

  • Viewing examples of teaching and coaching practice
  • Engaging in practice of SEC strategies
  • Reflecting on practice
  • Sharing strategies and insights in a professional learning community
  • Have access to the SEC Competencies Framework and Resource Guide.

This professional development is based on the work published in our book, Teaching with a Social, Emotional, and Cultural Lens: A Framework for Educators and Teacher Educators from Harvard Education Press.

What others have said about the CRTWC Social, Emotional, and Cultural Framework…

“Teaching with a Social, Emotional, and Cultural Lens is …a  critical resource for any educator who seeks to supercharge and harness their craft to achieve the absolute best possible outcomes for themselves and the children they serve.”

— Meria Joel Carstarphen, formerly superintendent, Atlanta Public Schools, Georgia

‘Teaching with a Social, Emotional, and Cultural Lens is a call to action…Starting out with a clear framework that describes these practices, and moving to illustrative examples from real classrooms in real schools, [creates] a compelling blueprint to help practitioners, schools of higher education, and districts to integrate a social, emotional, and cultural lens into everything they do.”

— David Adams, Director of Social-Emotional Learning, Urban Assembly, and Board member, Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning

“I always leave our time together more inspired and motivated to try new ideas. My overall growth mindset and social and emotional lens has reached new depths. As a teacher and cooperating teacher I am learning to live it out in my own life and creating space for it in my classroom. It’s been an unexpected gift that keeps on giving. Your dedication to this group has deeply reached me and my students- THANK YOU.”

— Rachel Bacosa, Social-Emotional Instructional Coach, Sunnyvale School District
