Course Introduction

Social and emotional learning is an integral part of development and plays a key role in academic achievement. This assertion is well-known and highly regarded among educators - teachers, school counselors, psychologists, social workers, and administrators - and families. However, according to some literature and our own professional and personal experiences, a neglected aspect of development by these professionals and caregivers is racial identity development. In this course/workshop, the professors provide an overview of racial identity models and theories, along with rationales embedded in case studies and vignettes to inform this work with students of color. Implications for developing racial pride and school achievement are discussed; resources are shared.

Learning Objectives

Participants will increase their familiarity with culturally responsive social-emotional needs and development. They will better understand racial identity theories, models, and resources to support students.
