Shifting Thinking: How Systems-level Work Can Help Your School Become Trauma-informed
Participants will begin to develop a systems-level mindset that is trauma-informed, and consider how a student’s neurobiology impacts behavior, especially during high-stress. An exploration of how a school’s embedded processes and procedures may serve as triggers will be presented.
Supporting the Whole Child with SEL Data: From Understanding to Action
Participants will discuss and explore evidence-based interventions and applications. This workshop offers a quick overview of the SEL approach/measurement for Westerville City Schools and surrounding districts, emphasizing data inquiry and action planning.
Social Emotional Learning: An Integrated Approach
Participants will leave with practical strategies they can incorporate into their classrooms immediately. Today’s students are entering classrooms with trauma backgrounds, broken families, and/or little in the way of social skills. They are expected to leave these issues at the door. This presentation will provide a framework to integrate Social Emotional Learning into a Writing Supplemental/ELA curriculum.

Understanding the Intersection between Executive Function, Social Emotional Health and Academics

Participants will explore ways to build instructional strategies that support executive function development and empower students to overcome emotional discomfort, enabling them to focus and learn.
Future Ready—Engaging Parents and the Community to Support Young People’s Social Emotional Learning
Participants will walk through the Future Ready Columbus journey of developing trust and strenghtening relationships between over 50 service providers who previously viewed themselves as competitors, opening a pathway for thoughtful and ongoing data-informed collaboration between out-of-school time organizations, schools, and funders.
