Empowering the School Community Through Social Emotional Learning
Keeping students engaged in learning is a universal need. Research shows a troubling drop in student engagement as they transition into middle school and then high school. Social emotional learning (SEL) can counteract this trend by helping students develop self-confidence and build strong decision-making, relationship-building, and emotional-management skills.
Taking a whole-child approach means focusing on the soft skills students need in addition to academic knowledge. SEL provides a way for educators to focus on teaching the whole student, and it can lead to greater insight into the struggles of individual students. For example, if academic struggles stem from a lack of self-confidence, educational interventions can address the root issue.
With best practices from the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the latest research, and additional resources for support, this ebook gives you the tools to implement or further develop your SEL program.
