Developing Social Emotional Skills during the English Class (SEL)

(The Connection between Academic and Social-Emotional Learning) - June 28-29, 2024


Venue: Active Learning Training Center (ALTC), 22-24 Adrian Street, sector 5, București


Emotions play an integral role in daily functioning through life. Moreover, feelings are crucial for success in education (as well as in life). Emotions are critical ingredients for optimal information processing, social communication, written communication, motivation, attention, concentration, memory, critical thinking skills, creativity, behaviour, physical health and even our very survival.


Using Psychodrama Techniques to develop SEL

During this -workshop we will familiarise ourselves with psychodrama instruments (stage, protagonists, auditory, auxiliary egos, alter-egos, props) and psychodrama techniques such as role reversal, double, mirroring, the empty chair, auxiliary chairs, amplification, role play, “chorus”, confrontation, drawing, sculptures, photographs, guided imagery, self-realization, making use of our spontaneity.


Using our Socio-Emotional Skills to Deal with Disruptive Behaviour

During this workshop we will explore the dynamics between emotions, thoughts, and behaviours, we will focus on empathy as meaning the capacity to identify and recognise the emotions of the others (our students and not only), starting to build awareness and competences of handling strong emotions. We will investigate specific situations we will create together relying on our class experiences to understand how we can become able to manage our student’s emotions and implicitly their behaviours. 

Developing SEL through Storytelling

This workshop aims to explore the intersection of English language teaching and socio-emotional learning through the powerful tool of storytelling. English teachers will learn how to integrate storytelling techniques into their lessons to create a more engaging and meaningful learning experience for their students. By incorporating socio-emotional learning principles, teachers can help students develop crucial life skills such as empathy, self-awareness, and emotional regulation, while also enhancing their language proficiency.


Participants will engage in hands-on activities and discussions to learn how to select and adapt stories for different proficiency levels, age groups, and learning objectives. They will also discover how to use storytelling as a platform for promoting positive values and fostering a sense of community within the classroom. By the end of the workshop, English teachers will leave with a toolkit of practical strategies and resources to effectively incorporate storytelling and socio-emotional learning into their English language lessons, helping to create a more holistic and impactful learning environment for their students.

Simona Popa
 Simona is a former teacher of English, currently educational psychologist, author of personal development coursebooks and therapist who likes working with children, teachers and parents to improve personal and interpersonal developmental skills. She believes that any human being has his own potential and failure is the result of a cumulus of emotions blocked. Thus, self-knowledge and self-awareness are the keys to achieving success and well-being. Only by being in contact with one’s emotions, by identifying them and understanding them we can make the changes we want in ourselves and in relations with the others and the world we live and are able to reach a high quality of well-being.


Simona is the founder of Active Learning Training Center where she facilitates self-development and professional development groups for teachers, offering educational consultancy and psycho-educational seminars for teachers and parents in partnerships with schools.
