Recipe for Creating Healthy Environments that Promote Student Engagement, Wellbeing and Performance
1:30 – 4:15 p.m. Deep Dive Session
Building off of the featured talk, this presentation will discuss the recipe for creating healthy environments that promote student engagement, wellbeing, and performance. Too often schools adopt and deliver a single or limited set of ingredients yet expect to achieve certain student outcomes (e.g., akin to using only flour to bake a chocolate cookie). However, single ingredient approaches are insufficient to provide the full range of experiences and supports students need to prevent problems from emerging, promote success enabling factors, and provide the foundation for more intensive intervention to work for the subset of students who need them. Instead schools must focus on using a recipe that combines important ingredients together to produce desired social, emotional, and academic outcomes. Attendees will learn about the specific ingredients and corresponding evidence-based practices that bring to life each of the ingredients in the recipe.
