In this edWebinar, Christa M. Tinari, M.A., educational consultant and coauthor of Create a Culture of Kindness in Middle School
, explores the everyday reasons why kindness efforts might fail. Drawing from the latest research on the impact of social-emotional learning on school climate, Christa provides a compelling rationale for integrating SEL into kindness campaigns. She identifies key social-emotional skills, such as emotional literacy, empathy, perspective taking, and upstander skills, that can help students (and staff) show kindness even when it’s hard to do. Viewers will leave with lesson ideas they can use immediately and throughout the school year to build a sustainable culture of kindness.
