Responsive Classroom is an evidence-based, student-centered, social and emotional learning (SEL) approach to teaching and discipline that focuses on engaging academics, positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness. Our professional development workshops help elementary and middle school educators create safe, joyful, and engaging classrooms and school communities where students develop strong social-emotional and academic skills.
Join us for an introductory or advanced workshop, and choose to attend either in person* or online. Learn how to integrate academic and social-emotional learning through key teaching practices in an experiential, informative, and supportive environment.
Registration usually closes three weeks prior to the date of the workshop.
All one-day workshops take place 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM in the time zone or location indicated. Evening workshops are 6:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern Time for three nights.
