Real-World Social-Emotional Learning: Ron Clark

For more than 10 years, The Ron Clark Academy — led by acclaimed educator Ron Clark — has turned out students who have been fully immersed in social-emotional learning principles.

Aiming to cultivate “global citizens,” Clark launched “The Amazing Shake” — a competition that places an emphasis on teaching students manners, discipline, respect, and professional conduct. Prior to the competition, students learn the nuances of professional human interaction as they are taught skills such as how to “work a room,” how to give a successful interview, and how to remain composed under pressure. “America’s Educator” and New York Times Bestselling Author Ron Clark will keynote the Social-Emotional Learning Forum at Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta in October.
