Social Emotional Learning, Student Agency and Special Education

This session will define “agency” – sense of efficacy.  Struggling learners tend to have lower amounts of efficacy.  Teachers can influence struggling learners’ self-efficacy by intentionally leveraging experiences, models, feedback and emotions.  Social Emotional Learning (SEL) offers a framework for students to internalize these concepts.  Participants will be able to translate theory of self-efficacy to instructional moves in the classroom and be able to apply SEL principles to the development of student agency.
