Learning Forward PA will host a Day of Learning on Oct. 29, 2019, in Manheim, Pennsylvania. The affiliate is partnering with Jon Norlin from Character Strong to focus on creating safe and positive schools.
Participants will learn how to infuse character and social and emotional learning into the daily fabric of their organizational setting. Research indicates that when a school takes the time to cultivate a culture of character and develop social and emotional skills, students perform better, develop a desire to attend school, and reduce disruptive behavior.
Topics will include a framework, resources, and a step-by-step process to weave character, relationship building, and social and emotional learning into what is already occurring in one’s site.
Participants will be able to return to their role and immediately apply what they’ve learned so they can create a community of staff and students who care about their work and each other. For more details, go to www.learningforwardpa.org.
