High-quality arts education is a powerful catalyst for social-emotional learning. In this session participants will explore how learning in and through the arts fosters social- emotional growth and contributes to positive school culture. The natural alignment between arts education and the five social-emotional competencies will be closely examined through colorful examples, demonstrating the many implications.This session will empower teachers and administrators to cultivate connections between their arts programs and the New Jersey Social Emotional Competencies with greater intention, in order to impact the student experience.
