When social-emotional learning is integrated into the curriculum, it sets the stage for each child to truly tap into their creativity. Innovation thrives in schools when students and teachers feel safe to take risks. In this workshop, we will introduce the Six Seconds EQ Model and the Synapse HEARTS Model, with a particular focus on the competencies most important for project-based learning and educating change makers. The goal of this workshop is to provide insights into how SEL, and academics can be fully integrated into a PBL curriculum.

We will share examples of projects and curricular construction tools from Synapse that reflect and support the mission and vision of our school. In the interactive portion, participants will work together in small groups, using the tools provided to construct project scaffolds and design interdisciplinary, integrated projects and lessons. We will conclude the workshop by leading participants in a reflection on how these models and tools can be used in their schools.
