Find out the key elements of the functioning of young people to create emotionally balanced class environments.

Location: Seville | Duration: 5 days

Summary

The school of 21st century has to cope with a lot of challenges. The changing world and labour market require from young people who graduate not only the best notes and high level of knowledge, but also well-developed social and emotional skills. This is why modern school should not only maximise students’ academic outcomes, but also include emotional education in their programme.

The recent research shows that social-emotional education is an important factor in helping students develop crucial life skills that go beyond academics. The present data shows that emotional education not only improves achievement, but it also increases prosocial behaviours (such as kindness, sharing, and empathy), improves student attitudes toward school, and reduces depression and stress among students (Durlak et al., 2011).

Taking all these factors into consideration, each teacher has to deal with the question: how to include emotional education in the academic curriculum full of obligatory criteria? Is it possible?

During this course you will have a chance to get to know tools and methods which help your students to develop their emotional intelligence and social skills and which you can use during your daily lessons. We will discuss and analyse how to involve emotional education into everyday school life, in decision making process, building self-confidence, self-awareness and self-management of the pupils.

You will have a chance to find new ideas how to promote social and emotional development for all students in classrooms, involving challenging students. You will learn and try some methods of stress reduction which you can use in your classroom and which help your students to control their emotions, find the emotional balance and give them opportunity to apply these skills in various situations in their lives.

Methodology

The approach will be practical, experiential and based on an analysis of reality and the group concerns. Mainly, we will work in the forms of a role play, drama methods, group dynamics, brainstorming and assembly, encouraging the reflection and creativity in order to expand the options and alternatives for action.

Additionally, the course follow-up strategy will be proposed to all the teachers in order to monitor the implementation of good practices of emotional education in their schools based on the knowledge, skills and competencies gained by them during the workshop.
