In episode 5, Kim Price, manager of social emotional learning for Denver Public Schools, and Katherine Plog Martinez, consultant for the Forum for Youth Investment, describe what to look for in schools and OST programs working to build children's SEL skills, why they created a new tool used during instructional "walk throughs" and how Denver has adapted to online learning.
"If we can have a continuous through line that is speaking social, emotional, academic learning for these students, we are increasing their opportunity to be successful both in school and out of school and in life. And, when we can do the heavy lifting on our part and have continuity of language, continuity of rituals and routines, behavior structures, and positive supports, we are creating an environment where our students can really thrive." – Kim Price
