Middle Schools SEL Project
Emotionally Responsive Practice at Bank Street is happy to be a provider service option for the Middle School Social Emotional Learning Project. ERP uses a developmental lens to better understand and respond to early adolescent challenges and behaviors. We use trauma-informed routines and practices to support teachers and administrators and help them build capacity to strengthen classroom community and improve self regulation.
Each middle school in our cohort will receive:
- Admission for 5-7 staff members* to attend the 5 day Middle School Institute for Emotionally Responsive Practice (Should include, 6th, 7th and 8th grade teachers, social worker or guidance counselor, administrator, or coach)
- Fall, Winter, and Spring onsite coaching visits to your school community (one may include a parent workshop)
- Admission for paras and aides to attend 3 session seminar series on Emotionally Responsive Practice
- An administrative consultation and planning session to address the specific social emotional issues in your school community
*Please choose participants who can work well as a group and are committed to supporting the social and emotional well-being of children in your school community. In Year 1, this group will plant the seeds for ERP to be seen and heard, and take root within your building!
