December Curriculum Update!

December News - Posted by Julie DeRoche

MERSD is a happening place to be! We are working on two important initiatives this year:  implementing K-12 RULER and curriculum alignment.  During scheduled professional development time and at various faculty meetings, teachers have been training on the RULER and learning about how social-emotional wellness relates to everyday work in schools, and with children and families. To learn more about the work that we are doing, see The Aspen Institute’s new case study on educator social and emotional development, featuring RULER among other strategies for educator social and emotional learning: Supporting the Whole Teacher
