Social Emotional Engagement: The “Fuel for Learning” in the Classroom Setting

Presenter: Emily Rubin, MS, CCC-SLP

Date/Time: Friday, December 2 2016 8:30am - 10:00am

Room: John Bassett Theatre


Research in the neuroscience of social emotional engagement fosters our ability to create a universal design for learning in our classrooms.  When school communities gain knowledge of a social and emotional scope and sequence of skills and how to facilitate student growth in these domains, we create a positive school climate that is focused on the success of every student. The Social Emotional Engagement – Knowledge and Skills (SEE-KS) program is focused on ensuring that learning environments address the needs of students with autism as well as a range of diverse learners by fostering student engagement, presenting information in multiple ways, and promoting student participation.

Learning Objectives:

  • As a result of this activity, participants will be able identify two implications of social neuroscience that impact how to design lesson plans to foster student engagement.
  • As a result of this activity, participants will be able to identify three essential instructional domains of social emotional engagement that contribute to a positive learning environment.
