For example, our catalog of “favorite Grow U mini courses” include 25 interactive, hour-long, online boosters. We have experts across the age-span (from preschool through to adults), in all kinds of educational settings (schools, community programs, parent educators, faith-based, higher ed, government agencies and everything in between).
Please contact us and tell us what you need to support educators with social emotional learning.
Implementing EQ in the Classroom
The EQ Educator Certification (EQE) supports people to practice and grow emotional intelligence (starting with self) using best practices to create great learning. Whether online or in-person, one key benefit is educators experiencing a role model of EQ-activated learning.
There are many kinds of “evidence” for evidence-based implementation. At Six Seconds we believe SEL assessments need to meet high standards for psychometric evaluation.
We recommend two toolsets (read about the tools here):
SEI measures the growth of emotional intelligence in children and adults (EQ Assessor Certification)
EVS measures school climate to develop a great place to learn (Education Vital Signs Certification)
Assessments are important for continuous improvement cycles, program evaluation, counseling, research, skill-building in special education, individual & group goalsetting, and to guide instruction.
