Social Emotional Learning Webinar + Resources
Social Emotional Learning + Be GLAD Strategies
Thank you to Erick Herrmann for hosting our back-to-school Be GLAD Educator Webinar and for sharing ideas on how to support our students' social-emotional learning (SEL). We discussed how SEL fits seamlessly into Be GLAD strategies, and how we can support our students in this moment and in the future.

Celebrating Oakland USD!
Teachers and staff at Oakland Unified School District have succeeded in launching a pilot program for Newcomers and Emerging English Language Learners using Be GLAD strategies. The SAILL (Summer Academy for Integrated Language Learning) at Esperanza Elementary offered a summer program for 180 students from 23 Elementary Schools entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. Due to the phenomenal success, OUSD’s Summer Academy was featured on ABC7!
Scaffolding Writing: Sketching
Humanity values creativity. We thrive upon both being creative and enjoying what others have created. That includes the arts, of course, but also the written word. We consume writing for many purposes, including learning new skills and topics, and for the pure pleasure of reading someone else’s thoughts or stories. Writing is all around us; on billboards and on social media, at the grocery store and in restaurants, and in the texts we utilize in schools. Writing, by definition, is a creative process. We are creating something when we write; a tool for communicating to others what we have learned, what our thoughts and feelings are, our stories, our experiences, and more.
