Next, to improve student ATTITUDES please consider using my 2-hour Social Emotional Learning (SEL) course, also called Character Education, which I have been using for 15 years with rave reviews. It’s based on more than 50 years of research by well-respected educational leaders. It’s very interactive and motivates students to provide most of the important input from their own lives. As a result, the students take ownership of the results which makes a bigger impact on them. Also, teachers learn how to reinforce and enhance the social impact of SEL throughout the year by motivating students to model the most admirable characteristics they’ve identified as good leadership traits.  Click on this link to read a description of the course objectives and benefits:
