Want to add even more value to your weekend? Join us for this years pre-conference! The pre-conference will take place from 10am to 3pm on April 29th. There will be a focus on the experiential models of framing, facilitation, and debriefing. Many of the activities and theories explored will be influenced by Laurie Frank’s book “Journey Towards the Caring Classroom.” Don’t let the word “classroom” fool you, this resource is one of the best experiential social-emotional activity books, for any population or environment, ever written. Come ready to engage, participate, be active, and play in a variety of experiential Social-Emotional Learning activities.
