Rating

Drive Systems-Level Change to Understand and Support Educator Resilience

Educators play a central role in shaping students’ experiences of school, motivation levels, and engagement.

As we shift into summer learning and back-to-school plans, adult SEL must be a priority in order to create the right conditions for learning to take place. Administrators can measure, understand, and address staff social-emotional well-being. Educators deserve opportunities to practice self-care while building self-efficacy as they prepare for the year ahead.

Our signature Adult SEL Toolkit—aligned to CASEL's Focus Area 2 for SEL implementation—has been downloaded by more than 21,500 educators and administrators since its original release in 2019.

For the 2021-22 school year, we've enhanced the toolkit with new adult SEL activities, protocols, and professional learning resources to help educators recharge and foster resilience. Download the updated toolkit to strengthen your district’s focus on systemic SEL and adult well-being in the upcoming academic year.

What's Inside This Toolkit?

✔ Panorama's Adult SEL Measures (includes 15 survey topics)
✔ *NEW* 4 Adult SEL Strategies from Panorama's Playbook
✔ *NEW* Adult Growth Circles Protocol
✔ *NEW* Adult Self-Reflection Worksheets

Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity: Expanding Our Understanding (Ages 13-18)
Rating

Curriculum Connections to: Language Arts, Civics/Citizenship, Diversity/Pluralism, Family Studies

Every single person on this planet will experience gender and sexuality in a variety of ways. This playlist asks its viewers to consider the multitude of stories experienced by 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals and communities in order to create deeper, more empathetic understandings of what it means to be 2SLGBTQIA+ and additionally, to open up conversations about what it means for anyone to experience gender and sexuality.

Educators in particular can use this playlist with high-school-aged students to challenge stereotypical and prejudiced narratives about 2SLGBTQIA+ people, while adding complexity to the experiences of folks who identify as being part of this community. As students’ understanding and experiences of gender and sexuality continue to evolve, films like these can be important tools for them to see themselves or loved ones represented, to develop their capacity to discuss these issues, and to deepen their empathy for those whose experiences might be different from their own.

Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity: Expanding Our Understanding (Ages 7-12)
Rating

Curriculum Connections to: Language Arts, Civics/Citizenship, Diversity/Pluralism, Family Studies

Children pick up ideas about gender beginning in their infancy; they constantly observe the variety of families and forms of expression around them, and they might be curious about the feelings they have for others. The films on this playlist will help to open up conversations about gender identity and sexual orientation in age-appropriate ways for primary-school children.

Educators in particular can use this list to prompt thinking and discussion about how people might express gender or identify with one gender or another; or about why some families might look different from others; or about what love can look like. The films can be used as entry points to learning about gender stereotypes, name calling and safe spaces.
