Registration open for 2017 Minnesota ASCD Annual Spring Conference

Spring Conference provides a great opportunity to learn more about Social Emotional Learning Standards and how to support students who are impacted by trauma. The conference keynote will focus on the Innocent Classroom. 

Author and educator Alexs Pate launched Innocent Classroom in 2012 with a vision to rebuild teacher-student relationships in school districts with some of the country’s widest gaps in achievement. Since that time, more than 2300 educators in 170 schools and programs have participated in Constructing the Innocent Classroom workshops.

Learn more about Innocent Classroom on youtube. Pate and his colleagues have worked with the St. Paul and Minneapolis Public Schools, as well as schools across the United States. 

Also featured at the conference will be Minnesota educators who have worked in the area of trauma and social emotional learning. Information about Minnesota's Social Emotion Learning Standards will also be shared.
