Understanding Social and Emotional Learning Connected to Current Events

  • The University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC) 2001 Plymouth Avenue North Minneapolis, MN, 55411 United States (map)

Because we don't have a Marketing Committee, it's essential that the entire board send their personal and professional networks an email once a week until we close registration Ap 17. I'll prepare an email that they can modify and personalize for their use. People respond best to marketing that comes from someone they know personally. I'll send out an email weekly to our contacts during that time as well. That will broaden our reach significantly.


I will make the emails for their and my use that include both of our spring events - Spring Conference and Relicensure Round-Up (We have 1 registration for that May 6 event.).


MN ASCD has great professional growth opportunities this spring. We need to let more people know about them.

A Collaboration of the Minnesota Writing Project & MN ASCD

  • Examine how students can make parallels between historical and current events
  • Explore ways to meet students' social and emotional needs while teaching writing
  • Learn about routines to implement in your classroom throughout the year to set the climate for difficult conversations around current events.
