Charlotte N.C. – March 8, 2016 – Assessment leader Apperson will host a free webinar at noon EST, March 16, 2016 to discuss best practices for integrating social and emotional learning (SEL) assessments and curriculum. The webinar, “Learn Why SEL Curriculum & Assessment Go Hand-in-Hand: Case Study,” will showcase the journey of Buncombe County Schools in North Carolina as it implemented a social and emotional learning program, assessed its success and reflected on the positive impact the program has had on students.
The webinar will also feature the Committee for Children which creates research-based SEL materials such as the Second Step program, a renowned SEL curriculum.
The webinar is part of Apperson’s ongoing work to support educators and administrators who want to implement social and emotional learning programs within their schools.
Apperson offers an online assessment and intervention tool called Evo Social & Emotional to help educators measure students’ SEL skills and provide strategies for instruction and intervention. Evo SEL features the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (the DESSA), a strengths-based assessment system designed to screen students for social and emotional competencies. The platform has been customized for the Second Step K-5 program.
During the “Learn Why SEL Curriculum & Assessment Go Hand-in-Hand: Case Study” webinar, presenters will provide an overview of SEL and discuss how to integrate the DESSA with the Second Step program to create a comprehensive SEL program.
Attendees will receive a free trial of Apperson’s Evo SEL featuring the DESSA – Second Step edition.
