Teaching Emotional Literacy: How to Increase Pupils’ Confidence, Engagement and Learning

Tuesday, June 14, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Many educators realise that for pupils to navigate school with both enjoyment and success, they need to develop, alongside their knowledge of subjects, their knowledge of self – in short, their emotional literacy.

And at a time when the pandemic has highlighted even more the importance of children’s good mental health, the question is not if but how to teach it.

To answer this question, Richard Evans, teacher, author and former journalist, developed the passport – a resource which helps educators to help pupils find solutions to their more intrinsic school needs: why they aren’t putting their hand up; looking at worksheets or completing homework; why they’re struggling to make friends, or take opportunities.  His book, ‘Independent Thinking on Emotional Literacy’ describes how to use the passport, while laying out the case for pupils’ emotional and academic learning to have equal priority.

In this session, Richard will:

  • Explore the importance of emotional literacy teaching in education
  • Discuss how this key intelligence can be taught to nurture a more grounded, engaged and intrinsically motivated child
  • Share his collaborative ‘passport’ template with which to teach it – drawing on examples of how it has successfully impacted pupils to date.

This course is suitable for pastoral teams, intervention and nurture teachers, mentors, ELSAs, LSAs, TAs, mental health teachers and TAs, PSHE teachers.

This course is for VNET Members only.
