As teachers, we are guides in both the academic and personal development of our students. We are witnesses to our students’ personal growth, struggles, and successes as they learn how to appropriately manage behavior, regulate emotions, and build relationships within their schools and communities. The Happiness Lab provides both teachers and students guided instruction to develop positive social and emotional well- being within the classroom. This workshop provides teachers with daily mini-lessons to support students' social and emotional development in students’ perspective, self efficacy, gratitude, kindness and mindfulness. These mini-lessons are engaging, multimodal, and collaborative. Students will have the opportunity to engage in relevant research, collaborate with peers, and practice various strategies to support their own regulation of emotions and behaviors. By providing social and emotional learning in the classroom, teachers can promote the personal and academic success of their students.
Students will engage with relevant research of social and emotional well-being in order to understand their own emotional state and needs. Students will collaborate with peers in order to build classroom relationships and community. Students will practice a variety of social and emotional regulation strategies in order to better manage and regulate their own emotions and behaviors. Students will create and implement personal self-care plans and routines in order to support their own emotional well-being. Students will implement daily social and emotional well being strategies in order to implement and maintain a positive perspective and emotional state. Teachers will be able to implement a social and emotional learning curriculum in their classrooms in order to support the social and emotional well being of their students and promote personal and academic success.
