RHS Counseling Department Introducing SEL to All Students...

What is SEL? An acronym for "Social Emotional Learning"-is a process for developing skills (often referred to as "soft" or "non-cognitive") that underpin academic success. Specifically, SEL focuses on the identification and management of one's emotions, goals, and mindsets.


Background Knowledge: SEL emerged in the mid-90s, the term "social and emotional learning" focused on positive youth development activities in schools. Some of the programs included violence prevention, sex education, drug prevention (Red Ribbon Week; RRW), civic education and others.


(MAWI Learning powered by ACT, 2020)


RHS will be conducting school-wide Social Emotional Lessons in the upcoming weeks.

Every Year in High School...

STUDENT CHECKLIST

(www.studentaid.gov )

TO DO:

( ) Work with a parent to estimate your potential financial aid

using FAFSA4caster at fafsa.gov, and continue to save for

college.


( ) Take challenging classes in core academic subjects.

Most colleges require four years of English, at least

three years of social studies (history, civics, geography,

economics, etc.), three years of math, and three

years of science. Many require two years of a foreign

language. Round out your course load with classes in

computer science and the arts.


( ) Stay involved in school- or community-based activities

that interest you or let you explore career interests.

Consider working or volunteering. Remember that it’s

quality—not quantity—that counts.


( ) Talk to your school counselor and other mentors about

education after high school. Your counselor can answer

questions about what classes to take in high school,

how to sign up for standardized tests, and where to get

money for college.


TO EXPLORE:

( ) Check out KnowHow2Go: The Four Steps to College, at

www.knowhow2go.org for more advice on actions you can

take as you start thinking about education beyond high

school.
