Comedian Jack Gallagher, who will give the keynote address at the upcoming SCUSD-Sac State sponsored Social Emotional Learning Summit, was featured in a Sacramento Bee profile on January 15.

The Bee story focused on Gallagher’s upcoming show “5 Songs” at the B Street Theatre. His keynote address at the February 13 “The Power of Relationships: An SEL Summit” will touch on his experiences as a parent of a child with autism.

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a growing movement in education in which students are explicitly taught skills like impulse control and empathy. By learning how to self-manage and get along socially, classrooms become safe and managed and teachers can prompt kids to take the kind of learning risks necessary to grasp high-level concepts that colleges and employers want.
