ABOUT THE COURSE

The Circulus Fundamentals Course is a blended learning opportunity for educators to spend intentional time deepening their own adult Social Emotional Learning practice. Through learning about the science of SEL, building a reflective practice, and connecting with colleagues from other schools in small peer-support communities (PSCs), students will develop the adult practices necessary to support young people’s SEL.

 

The course culminates with an online gathering of all of our students, where they will demonstrate their learning and encourage each other to continue this reflective learning experience beyond the course.

IN MORE DETAIL

During these six and a half weeks, students learn about the latest research and effective practices in SEL and Adult Social and Emotional Competencies and embark on their journey in reflective practice within their peer-support communities.

The course culminates with an online gathering of all of our students, where they will demonstrate their learning and encourage each other to continue this reflective learning experience beyond the course.

The three themes that are interwoven into every aspect of the course are:

  • Reflection We create opportunities for students to reflect on what they are learning, to reflect on their teaching practice, to reflect on their own general personal development
  • Science and Practice We create opportunities for students to learn the most up to date SEL research and effective practices
  • Social Support We create opportunities for students to bond with each other (through play/fun, dialogue, and group guidance)

By the end of the course, students will have an understanding of SEL fundamentals, they will have learned how to build and sustain a practice of reflection in their work, and they will have developed a support system to help them sustain this work.
