WHAT IS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions (CASEL 2017).


So why is SEL so important? Because it provides a foundation for safe and positive learning and enhances students' ability to succeed in school, careers, and life.
