Social & Racial Justice
Over the course of each week, teachers will integrate social justice, racial justice, and/or social emotional learning into each class.
Our Social Emotional Learning will support educational and racial justice, by addressing the psychological stress of students of color, in multiple ways: emphasizing whole-child development, drawing attention to the social nature of learning, advancing the belief that all children can learn, developing young people’s skills to navigate social contexts, and improving relationships between students and educators—a key protective factor for all students.
Connection and relationship-building activities will be embedded in every classroom. through intentional check ins and/or SEL skill-building activities with students.
