Using Video Modeling and Peer Modeling to Teach SEL Skills

Peer models and video modeling are effective tools in teaching students social/emotional related skills because they provide the visual of what to do combined with the script of what to say in student friendly ways. Peer modeling allows students to practice their skills while also helping others and leaves students feeling empowered, connected, and more accountable. Video modeling can be a tool in helping students learn skills in real life contexts and scenarios that are meaningful. This workshop will show you how to structure the use of video modeling and peer modeling to teach, practice, and build social emotional skills in the CASEL Competencies of Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making. Learn how to implement these at the Tier I level to teach whole class expectations such as how to agree/disagree constructively, accept feedback, and what group work looks like as well as at the Tier III level to teach student goals such as “reading the room,” reframing negative self-talk, or using replacement/coping strategies. There will be opportunities to collaborate, work through scenarios, and apply the content to your setting so you leave with strategies you can implement tomorrow.
