Charlotte N.C. (May 16, 2019) — To provide educational equity, schools must ensure all students receive the resources they need to be prepared for success after graduation. This includes resources to help students build social and emotional skills such as empathy, respect and the ability to build positive relationships with classmates and colleagues. To support schools in this work, Aperture Education will host a free webinar at 2 p.m. Eastern Time on May 28, 2019 offering insight, tools, and techniques that can help teachers and administrators use Aperture’s DESSA Comprehensive SEL System to support educational equity.

In the webinar, “Advancing Equity with the DESSA: Practical Applications to a Crucial Issue,” participants will learn new approaches for recognizing and honoring students’ strengths, differentiating SEL instruction to support equity and identifying and countering implicit bias.
