Data driven Social/Emotional Instruction

The practical science of Resilience

Early this year Greg Mitchell had the joy of working with some Year 1 classes and running through some assessment techniques that he had created of student’s social/emotional development using four different mindset trends that occur at the same time as four big changes in the first eight years of a child’s life.

The response from both students and teachers were extremely positive.

From that experience Greg has created a Data Driven Instructional approach to teaching social and emotional skills to improving social and emotional growth with the Prep to Year three classes.

This fascinating approach shows teachers how to

  1. Map each child’s social/emotional development
  2. Analyse the experiences each child needs developmentally
  3. Deliver a range of teaching actions based on Harvard’s extensive research into child development that will aid with healthy social/emotional development of each child and
  4. Develop a culture of positive mental health from an early age.


The workshop delivers a huge range of powerful, research-based teaching strategies as well as teaching Data Based Instructional process that can improve teaching in all areas.


Teachers are invited to set up a proactive social/emotional development strategy which will benefit the whole school and create cutting edge analysis for behaviour management in the years ahead.


Greg Mitchell began teaching in junior primary classrooms 40 years ago and he has been mesmerised by them ever since. His experience in teaching children social and emotional health to young students is broad  and rich and he can’t wait to share his learning with teachers and schools who are eager to inoculate their students from the oncoming epidemics of mental health and social dysfunction.
