SEL-Social, Emotional, Learning in Schools
SEL- and Challenging Behavior
Many young and old students struggle with school's social aspects. This may mean:
- Interacting with other students, teachers, and other staff members
- Understanding non-verbal interactions and social cues
- Managing their emotions and expressing them appropriately
- Controlling their behavior
While these are not strictly academic concerns, they affect students' ability to access their education. It is challenging to learn when you are concerned about your social world or even worse when you are asked to leave the class for not understanding or reacting poorly to instructions or demands.
In this month's newsletter, I would like to focus on some SEL strategies and lesson plans you can incorporate into your classroom. See below for five evidence-based fun-filled games!

What is Growth Mindset and why is it a focus in our schools?
A growth mindset is the foundation of every learning environment. Students who possess a growth mindset are proven to be happier and achieve more in life. They are more willing to take on new challenges, have a passion for learning, and view failure as an opportunity for learning and growth. A growth mindset is essential to becoming a successful lifelong learner, and it is something anyone can develop with practice.
DON'T PUT PEOPLE IN BOXES IS A GREAT WAY TO CREATE A FUN SEL IN YOUR CLASS THAT ENCOURAGES GROWTH MINDSET

How do I develop a Growth Mindset?
How can educators and parents learn more?
Teachers who have opportunities for sustained, ongoing professional development that is linked to classroom practices are more likely to see meaningful changes in their practices.
Developed in collaboration with Raise The Bar, parents learn what a growth mindset is, why it’s important, and best practices to support their children in developing this learning belief.
