EDUCATOR’S CORNER

 

Strong Hebrew and Judaic teaching will always be central to Kol Ami and our Hebrew program expectations have remained the same, but it has become increasingly important that young people receive an educational experience that maximizes who they are as individuals and as a community. This occurs through communication, collaboration, empathy, and creativity. Our teachers have begun a three- part professional development series on Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) and we are working to incorporate these strategies.


 

SEL Chart

Self-awareness: Know your strengths and limitations, with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a “growth mindset.”

Self-management: Effectively manage stress, control impulses, and motivate yourself to set and achieve goals.

Social awareness: Understand the perspectives of others and empathize with them, including those from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Relationship skills: Communicate clearly, listen well, cooperate with others, resist inappropriate social pressure, negotiate conflict constructively, and seek and offer help when needed.

Responsible decision-making: Make constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on ethical standards, safety, and social norms.
