What is Social Emotional Learning??

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is critical in developing the skills students need to achieve academic success. CASEL (Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning) describes five core areas students should acquire in order to experience academic success. These areas include: self awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. Throughout Professional Development, whole group classroom lessons and classroom implementation, Raleigh Park educators have been working hard to provide students with Social Emotional Learning.
