School-Connect Institute 2012

The School-Connect Institute prepares high school educators to implement the School-Connect curriculum with their students, promote social emotional learning in their classrooms, and provide staff training in their school or district.

School-Connect: Optimizing the High School Experience is a 40-lesson curriculum designed to improve high school students’ social, emotional, and academic skills and strengthen relationships among students and teachers.  Lessons are based on the Social and Emotional Learning Competencies identified by researchers as critical to success in school, the workplace, and life in general: social awareness, self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.

The School-Connect Institute offers the following training options:

Training Option #1 – Staff Training (1 day)
Staff training directly prepares participants to present School-Connect lessons and fosters teacher confidence, enthusiasm, and commitment to program goals. The training provides an overview of curriculum concepts and strategies, practice in facilitating student-driven discussions and activities, and links to academic integration.  Early bird rate $195/person; $225 after July 1 .

Training Option #2 – Trainer Training (1.5 days)
Trainer Training includes the one-day staff training and another half-day for participants to learn how to provide School-Connect training and implementation support in their school or district. Participants receive a Trainer’s Toolkit, which includes the Training PowerPoint presentation, a short informational PowerPoint presentation, a CD-ROM of training handouts, and guidance on implementation. It is highly recommended that school teams select this option.  Early bird rate $295/person; $275/person for teams of two or more; $325/person after July 1.
